Don't bother to set up a tree on this site

You can put information in your tree that you either have verified or know personally. Someone else comes along and changes it. I suspect that people who have ancestors with the same name mix-up the individuals and proceed to make changes in your tree without your approval thus eventually making the tree useless. Also, you are unable to delete your tree so once you enter it you lose control and it remains online forever with inaccurate information. I don't want to waste my time entering and then later have to do corrections after someone makes changes. Totally frustrating.

In summary, I would not recommend Family Search to a friend.
