I currently have 327 4th cousins or closer or which 1 is a second cousin and 7 are 3rd cousins and frustrating they either don't have a family tree and/or it is only goes back a couple of generations :(

My matches on MyHeritage have been fewer but more helpful.
Davis - Berkshire & London
Sutcliffe - Yorkshire & London
Harrington - Ireland and London
Fuller - Cambridgeshire and Essex
Waldron/Waldren - Devon & London
Frisby and Lee - Leicestershire
Hollingsworth - Essex
Williams - Ireland? and London
Ellis, Reed & Temple - London
Lane - ?
Surplice - Cambridgeshire
Elwood - Cambridgeshire

Hurray! I've finally moved off 200 onto 201! And its a Russell match - these are a bit like hen's teeth, so worth waiting for.

Another question about colour coding (sorry, gadget): I am now colour coding my brother's matches which I manage. I have picked up some matches way down the pecking order - latest is 11cMs. I've looked and looked but can't see any other way of adding this 11cM bod to a colour group without scrolling right down the entire list until I get to him - very time consuming, not to mention mind-numbing (and I don't need any more of that, thank you!). Is there a simpler and quicker way of doing this? (I bet there is, I just haven't found it!!  :-[)

I have 537 4th cousin or closer but only  around 70 are from my paternal side from Scotland.  My maternal side is from a small island in Mayo, Ireland but it's very complicated trying to place anyone, lots of double cousins and hardly any trees 😓
