Please check your Family Tree dates

I was looking in Ancestry family trees for my Jolly family today for some leads, and what do I find, that over and over people pick up information as gospel and pass it on. One quick look told me that the dates were not possible. People do not have children after they are dead or before thye are born or when they are 70 years old, etc. I don't want to sound like I am on a rampage and I know that it is exciting when you think that you have found new info on your family, but PLEASE check it out before passing it on. I found the same mis-information repeated over and over and it was clear that people had simply picked it up and passed it on. Don't take anyone's work for granted.
