So, about 210 people in 64 groups. About 30 people with no matches with anyone else. What's next?

I feel a massive Venn diagram coming on!

Pass! I have one group of 33 close and 50+ distant matches and no clue how any of them are related.

Oooh! Finally! The penny has dropped!! Unfortunately it hasn't yet for my OH as he is still wearing the expression i had until yesterday. I needed the visual spreadsheet for me to finally get it!

Had a quick look at the other tree where a grandfather is unknown. Helpfully this person has a several known close cousins who have their DNA on Ancestry so I can quite easily see they my contact has three 2nd cousin matches related to each other but not to the other known lines of my contact's tree. Something to work on!!!

Sounds like you are getting somewhere Merry.

The idea of the Leeds sorting is that you don't know who most, if not all, of them are and you group them and hope some of them have enough of a tree to work it out.

For ancestry I have 2 groups called maternal and paternal and I try to get everyone into one of those. I also have an NFI group. The names get a bit tricky as there aren't enough dots but if you can identify any branches then you can label those, if you can't stick with numbers.

I also did the spreadsheet thing twice before I felt confident I had a grasp on it. It helped that I came across people I have seen with trees before so I had an idea of relationships and Dad had a cousin and cousins son who had tested so between them I could rule matches paternal or maternal quite easily.
