What specifically is your question?
Using those web sites, it is quite possible that there are two people with the exact same name. This has nothing to do with lineage. It just shows that a person of that name exists. There may be 100 Miss _____ Goldsteins around.
As for verifying someone's lineage, that is done by obtaining birth certificates for the person (Miss Goldstein), then her parents' marriage record, then their birth certificates, etc. Most states will not issue a copy of a birth certificate to anyone whose name is ***** ***** the birth certificate (i.e. the child or a parent of the child) and only with confirmed identification. Once a number of eyars have passed (anywhere from 75-100 depending on the state) birth records become public and anyone can obtain a non-certified copy (i.e. one that cannot be used as identification).
