Highest matches are 34 cM, 33cM, 31cM and then loads between 22 - 12cM ( x 12 matches in this range) x

Definitely something to work on .the fact you match descendants of children of both wives means that the match is through the father not the mother's

Next

You have to check if any of the 25+ cm matches have shared matches with any other cluster of shared names

Looking for connections from UK to USA

Thanks for the glowing review Littlebn  *i didnt spot reply 17 yesterday.

I m sure we have helped some of the American matches climb further up their tree + it's been exciting to watch developments confirm the DNA to one distant ancestor .
Which will surely inspire others to use this method


Now to apply the same technique to find the English Irish descendants and John LANGSTON s baby mama

* Will link this topic to the American one .

Littlenbn By the way the link you posted to nansdadclues tree in initial post is fixed on your early hypothesis I think it's changed quite a bit since then

You should put your gran or living person as the home person instead of cc who you could  call   matchB then you can see what relationships would be of the matching generations

Does that make sense
