Why does ancestry add an "index only" to a person? Recently I added a newly found relative and once AGAIN ancestry has added a "document" for her that doesn't exist. The link ancestry provides leads to the Prince Edward Island vital statistics data base where you can search. I have a surprise for ancestry. Nobody will find this baptism at PEI vital statistics because it was a church record hand typed by me.

1829 Age: 20
Feeby Clark Ward, aged 20 years the 5th day of last July, and baptized by John Snowball. (Between August 24-September 6, 1829

PEI did not keep records in 1829. It was published in the newspaper or recorded in church records. It's a terrible disservice to add "facts" to your data base with the source being someone's family tree fact. This is the second time I can prove ancestry did this. My other family member was entered as died probably in 1888 likely in South Dakota. Next thing I knew, there's a Family Data Collection. There is no such record. I don't know where or when she died. I guessed when I put it on her facts page in my tree. Look for yourself.

Don't do it. Stop doing it. Remove the ones you've dreamed up so far. It's hard enough to get the right person without red herrings supplied by ancestry. Am I mad? You'd better believe it.
