On Ancestry I have a 3C1R (29 cM) and a 4C1R (28 cM) both descended from my paternal line yet neither is a shared match to my cousin. Another 4C1R from the same line is only a 10cM match

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Matches from continental Europe.

myheritage does seem to throw up a lot of European matches
My 8300 matches include
130 Germany, up to 47.1 cM
123  Netherlands up to 31.0 cM
93 France up to 37.0cM
79 Denmark up to 30 cM
74 Sweden up to 33.8 cM
63 Norway up to 23.5 cM
etc

Other than war service- Nelson's Navy, Waterloo, WWI, WWII and a  Royal Marine ancestor in the 1850s I have no evidence of any of my ancestors (all English, from the Home Counties or the SW) going abroad. So all these connections are mysterious. I have yet to find any relative who migrated to Europe

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Triangulated segments.

The simple answer is yes they descend from a common ancestor

see https://dna-explained.com/2019/11/06/triangulation-in-action-at-family-tree-dna/

Interface looks better but currently I look to have lost a lot of matches.

I've got 10 6th cousins showing via Common Ancestors, all of which appear to be correct. The connections go back to the early 18th century. I've also one match who is a 7th cousin which it doesn't pick up

6
I actually have 9 6th cousins show up by common ancestors, most (all?) of whom appear to be genuine, some up to 14 cM

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Has anyone used Family Tree DNA?

Having uploaded my DNA, English only heritage as far as I can ascertain, to FamilyTree DNA my impression is that FamilyTree DNA is of limited value with such heritage. The only matches I have managed to see a link to are those that I have established from other sites

Another advantage of myHeritage is that it tells you how closely shared matches are to both of you
