Not at all, and here's why:
In the rest of the world, it is pretty much only those people who are interested in genealogy who work on their family trees. Some treat it as an intellectual pursuit.
In the Mormon world, each person is required to work on his or her family tree, whether interested or not, and whether or not the word "intellectual" can ever be used in connection with that person. So it is unsurprising that there is a lot of uninspired and unintelligent research being conducted there.
Imagine if everybody you know who was non-Mormon was also required to work on their genealogy. What do you think we'd end up with then?

Does anyone else find it ironic - and more than a little puzzling -
that, with such a rich cache of original records at their disposal,
church members have posted inaccurate and incomplete data?
