Thanks for the link  :)

I'm still a novice with DNA but slowly learning the techniques. The DNA masterclass piece is really useful.

I particularly like the suggestion of searching by surname which links with private trees as well as public. I hadn't realised it used the private trees in the search. These were a real frustration! So far, I've found relationships with quite a few matches whose trees were private, and I've only just started. It has helped solve the queries raised by many of the shared matches.

I'm only using my unusual surnames at the moment. The Joneses, etc. need more detailed study  ;D

On a more general point, it seems that my matches are predominantly from three lines. I think it's probably because these were the lines that emigrated, so the US/Canada distant cousins would be more likely to be tested than we stay at home Brits  ;D

Kim, in my posts I have always recommended Lost Cousins newsletters, this time I thought I would add the link, as it is a DNA masterclass one.

This is at the bottom of the newsletter.

Hi Gadget.

My tree is Private as I was fed up with people copying it, complete with errors! I am always updating it.

If anyone contacts me to view my tree, I always allow them, they have made the effort.

I wish Ancestry had another button on their Private Trees saying please feel free to contact.

Regards
Kathy

You can go into "My Profile" and tick the "I am able to help other Ancestry members" box which is probably pretty close to that
