I would strongly ad­vise re­searchers to be very wary when view­ing other peo­ple’s fam­ily trees on­line, as I have found many er­rors on them. For ex­am­ple, ‘my’ Alice has been linked to the wrong fam­ily on sev­eral trees I have seen.

You should also try to cross­ref­er­ence as much in­for­ma­tion as you can, and think out­side the box when nec­es­sary.
