The Junkyard Collector

Lorine from the  Olive Tree Genealogy blog described several types of Genealogist in 2012. I will publish each of these profiles over the next few months. Do you exhibit the traits of this one?
The Junkyard Collector: This genealogist gets excited over online Family Trees and merges them with his/her own. He/she never verifies anything or checks their facts. Before long they have a mess of unsourced information, conflicting data and facts that don’t make sense. They’ll have female ancestors having children at the age of 100, or men born 50 years after their spouse or children born before their parents.
