In regard to my matches on AncestryDNA I have been able to work out where most of my closer matches tie in by looking at our shared matches. That's easy enough to do, then I have them all colourcoded by family. I do not have many closer matches that are not accounted for. I have contacted any that might pertain to my unknown great grandfather but unfortunately haven't had any replies. There seems to be many matches where people either haven't logged in to Ancestry for a long time, or maybe they don't have much interest in genealogy itself and have only done the test for the novelty of knowing ethnicities!
That makes it frustrating when trying to find a lead.  :(

I'm in much the same situation with my Paternal Grandfather Katherine...

All it needs is for the 'missing link' to test!

Don't give up, - just check again from time to time...
