The Ultimate Family Tree Challenges: Consistency and Accuracy -- Part One



Let's pretend that we could somehow zoom out and look at the entire 1.1 billion entries in the FamilySearch.org Family Tree at the same time. Let's further imagine that we could filter our view of this huge expanse of names to show all of the inconsistent or inaccurate entries in blazing red while the rest of the tree was in some pleasing pastel color. How much of the Family Tree would be highlighted in blazing red?At the recent RootsTech 2017 Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, MyHeritage.com introduced a new feature for all of its millions of user family trees. The feature was given the name of the Tree Consistency Checker.
