It is a pretty long post, but if you are interested you can read it here:

I usually check to see if any of the links to other member trees are backed by records. If so, I look at the record itself and determine if it is useful. I can add or ignore it from that point.
Prior to the new MemberConnect feature being installed, I had already been e-mailing back and forth with a couple of other people researching the same family lines. They show up automatically on my member connect now, which just makes things easier.
To the naysayers, I say, “Big deal”. Ancestry just offered another possible place to start. It’s up to you to decide whether or not you want to use it. Don’t get it taken down just to annoy those of us who do use it.

Why do I care when as I work through my people ,I can do the same with no prompting from anyone else? Or for that matter really care what they are doing.

I also reviewed the 70 new possible connections for others researching one of my ancestors and as I looked through the details, the “conflicting” information from many other members is wrong. Why would I want to spend my time comparing my documented information against that of other members who clearly need to do some further research?

That said, I can see the value of member connecting and periodically I look at other trees to see if I am missing a connection, but again I do not need the clutter that goes along with this new enhancement.

I think it is great and in time more features will be added to make it even better. For those who complain or do not want this service…just put it in the trash.
More constructive comments from members who find “bugs”, want filters or other enhancements, would benefit everyone.

I have found no issues with them other than I would like to filter by tree. For all those who don’t see any value, just ignore it and don’t use it.
