Newspapers have a hard time with facts...
"HaMevaser," Erev Shavuos, 5770 (courtesy of Shturem.net)
Even something as simple as a few generations of a recent Rabbinic family is difficult to copy paste correctly! The family tree is difficult to read, but the mistakes are in the written parts. See the Tzemach Tzedek's descendants for one example; Reb Yisroel Noach was NOT connected to Ovrutch, it was his brother, Reb Yosef Yitzchok, the Rebbe Rashab's shver, who left his father and traveled to Ovrutch to become it's Rov, as per the request of his shver, Reb Yaakov Yisroel of Tcherkas, son in law of the Mitteler Rebbe, N"E. That too was embroiled in controversy, as the Tcherkaser's brother, Reb Aron Tcherbobler, also had a candidate for that city's Rabbonus.
