Sadly, ancestry.com makes it easy to upload family trees that can then
be copied into other trees. It is not as easy to remove an uploaded
tree, so its not easy to 'fix' errors. You can, however, post notes to
trees & to Ancestry online records. I have posted many, with corrections
in spelling, dates etc. It makes me feel better, even if there are
hundreds of tress with my great great grandfather's marriage date mixed
up with his death date. <sigh>

One feature I use when I teach genealogy is LDS. Since I am in the
Chicago area, we look up Abraham Lincoln. The search result is riddled
with erros and redundancies. Point made for my class.
