Actually, probably not. I was trying to be as unspecific as possible in
order to avoid stepping on any theological toes (and thereby offending our
moderator), but the particular genealogical database that I had in mind does
not belong to any genetic testing company, and is 'corporate' only in a very
broad definition of the term.
My point was that given these people's extremely casual attitude towards
documentation, I don't consider it worth my while to submit my work to them.
I also wanted to bring up the point that the lack of documentation on
records obtained from this particular (widely used) source is not always the
fault of the researchers.
