Need assistance with tree mistakes
I just joined the group, wanting information on a relative. When i got to his tree i found major mistakes in the tree. I found no way to correct the mistakes. I found my father married to someone else and my gr. grandfather incorrectly listed. I am certain the site is in error.

Welcome to FamilySearch Community. Thank you for your question regarding correcting information for your relative.
If you could provide the ID # of the relative you are enquiring about we will be better able to assist you.0
James Allen Harding (LKGC-P3W) mistakenly listed as married to someone other than my mother, Marilyn Naomi Hess.
Walter Harding (LKGC-54S) mistakenly listed with a first name of Marion. Father listed as Silas Harding was incorrect. James Allen Harding was Walter's father.
Person or identification of person mistakenly entering the data is calebrobertson2.
I have corrected most of the errors.0
The James you created to correct the parentage of Walter is a duplicate and should be merged with James Allen Harding ID# 2Z98-2Z30
The entire tree should be eliminated but I know that is not your policy. I am not going to try to straighten out the whole tree. The creator of the tree is my second cousin. I have contacted him and will pass on a hard copy of the correct tree.1
It is perfectly okay to do what you can and leave the rest. Perhaps suggest calebrobertson2 come here for support.0
