pasher44: "And each new attempt will (or should) improve on the logic/algorithms used for matching. Improved logic could be used to weigh conflicting data and assign probability ratings so that conflicting birth/death/marriage info might all be listed, but ranked as most to least probable."

Since most trees hosted on the internet, including on Ancestry.com, are mostly junk, it matters not how logical an algorithm is constructed to stitch a bunch together. No computer algorithm can evaluate whether items attached to individuals or families were applicable, or whether any evidence was the basis of X assertion as to event time/place or relationships. Myriad tree owners don't even get place-names spelled right (oh, so many are just copied from copies of copies . . . .).
