Thanks Pheno - yes have checked unlinked trees etc and have followed up a few other DNA links but its just odd I thought for people to take the test and then have no tree there for you to compare.  With so many links showing up but no way of knowing which ones are connected where its often like a needle in a haystack - whereas if they have trees at least you can dig around to find out possible local links.
With all my matches I have almost 33k and its so annoying to have people showing but no trees to find out where.  If you know which line it might be then its much easier to pick which oens to pursue.
Do people just take the test and then do nothing with it I wonder?

Yes they do cos they are often given them for presents and have no interest in their lineage.  Also quite a lot are only interested in their 'ethnicity' and not where it originates from.

If you have taken an ancestry test are you on the new beta version - I think you will find the matches more helpful.
