ThruLines(tm) at AncestryDNA is automated. I understand that.
Can’t it be automated to not include obvious errors? There are two egregious mistakes in this line that it wants me to evaluate:
- Hinrich Sartorius died in 1912–before Richard Sartorius was born in 1930.
- Richard Sartorius is listed as his own grandfather.
ThruLines(tm) has made analysis of some of my matches easier in the sense of saving time of going through the trees myself. But this seems to be an error that programming should catch.
Maybe this was a test to see if I would notice the error. Hopefully I passed that test because someone else certainly did not because any programmer who has passed programming 101 should be able to weed out compilations like this.
