Where do the records in the FamilySearch database come from?
I recently joined and searched for family members. I was interested to find records of one branch of my family as they interest me a lot.
I did however discover records from a living relation from another branch of my family tree. I contacted this person to say that those records are to found on FamilySearch, and that person was a little disconcerted by that.
So I am just curious to know how such records enter the FamilySearch database? To clarify, the records in question are birth and marriage records from the United Kingdom. Would they have been entered by users of the website? I cannot see any information on the records themselves.
Thanks in advance!
