In essence this database is junk, just like the Millennium file and other compilations from family group sheets, genealogies that may have been based on no evidentiary records at all, or queries in newsletters.

While some of what seems to connect with your families may actually be correct, there is no way to tell from the database if any of it is based in evidence.

The material is not taken from Ancestry.com trees, but most trees throughout the internet contain stuff from the same sources.

You are best off to ignore it and its kin, and do actual research in records, step by step, generation by generation and relationship by relationship.
