Collaboration and data quality improvements across different genealogy sites
I am curious whether any genealogists are collaborating on projects to reconcile differences and improve the accuracy of our common "way back in time" ancestors. I much enjoy seeing my pedigree on Family Search going back, in some cases, tens of generations. But then, comparing that data to various other sites (wikitree, geni, fabpedigree, etc., etc., etc.) I see sometimes massive and obvious differences, errors, etc. These are not linguistic or spelling variants, but large to very large mistakes. Some stuff well and convincingly sourced, and some other stuff ... not so much. Dozens of errors in just an hour's roaming around. Call it my database development background, but I crave one version of the truth instead of three dozen! I could imagine how such a (massive) project might be organized. Just a thought. I will post this same Q on a few other sites and see if I get any nibbles.
