Accuracy of records
The records on this site were able to fill in my paternal and maternal ancestors back to the 1600's immediately. I have only visited twice and though the names at a glance seem to be accurate, I have already found many details that aren't. I managed to get the powers that be to change my mother from dead to living. (Quite a shock to find her listed as "deceased"!) However, I don't know how to add my paternal grandfather's second wife and their 3 children (the people I knew as a child). One of my 3xgreat-grandfathers is listed as having 13 children. He had 15. I was able to add one, but the other is a twin listed as one child with an "aka" of his twin's name. I tried to add the last child born to another couple. He was adopted a short time after he was born as his mother died of complications from giving birth. I entered him with his birth name and put his adopted name as "aka", only to find at the end of the process I should have done it the other way around.
I have only spent a short time here, but feel at this rate, I could spend the last years of my life correcting things and never tell the stories I came here to document (memories from my grandmother (born in 1891) of her life and those of her parents' and grandparents' generations. I don't "do" social media nor have I joined internet communities, so am not good at these things. I am disheartened and wonder if I should just give up. Can someone help?
