The answer is no. My gran & family are on Family search put on there by someone who took my tree off here then submitted it to Family Search. He has wrong information on there. Use it as a guide only then research it.

Not neccessarily especially if the submitter is an American they tend to latch onto other peoples trees even though it might not be their ancestors.they also put in what they think they know not what they actually have proved from records etc
Also in the past I have contacted submitters about famiy names and found out that their names had been put on the wrong family pages

I have been looking at familysearch.org
I have notice that the submitter is the same person on
all the submitted materail i am researching

does this mean that the submitter is researched and submitted names they are reseaching and then submitted

I have been researching two different tree lines and all the submitted materail is by one sertain person will this also be there
tree line that they may have research too.

or are they just random submittiones that they may have transcribed for familysearch.
