Major AI Transcription Issues with Genealogy Bank Records
In my research I keep coming across (as do lots of friends and colleagues) of records that are from Genealogy Bank that are horribly transcribed with no way to correct them. To an unsuspecting person or someone just starting out this has the potential to really mess up the records for people and result in hints not being established when they should be. For example, a relative of mine passed away on January 23, 1992. It says January 23, 2023. I have come across this so many times now where the years are incorrectly transcribed same with the dates in general for alot. In addition, relationships and names are often incorrect with these records. It seems very pervasive for records from Genealogy Bank and is a major issue I am running into and as I said friends keep coming to me with the same problems. I'm just not sure where to bring this issue because it really does seem to be the case on a large scale that could be affecting thousands of records and going through them individually is nearly impossible. This is even worse when you have records that are hard to find for a person and the only ones available are Genealogy Bank sourced through the Family Search search records function.
