I'm not impressed that my 22k matches are now all on a single page. It took 4 months to triage BM's matches down to abt 500. Looks like I'll have to do that with mine, if I am to have anything sensible to deal with. t's currently really sticky, moving down the list.

On the plus side, you can put people into more than one group, so coz is in two main groups, and sib's child in four.

Does the shared ancestor feature only work if you have a public tree?

I'm guessing it is the same as Thru Lines: ThruLines is available for a limited time for all members to explore. ThruLines Beta is available to anyone who has linked a public or private searchable tree that is well built (should be at least 3–4 generations deep) to their AncestryDNA test.

I can see I will need more than 24 groups. Am going to set them up just on one side of my tree for now and work on that, then at some point I will get rid of them and set new ones up for the other side, unless they increase the limit in the meantime!

Is there any explanation about groups anywhere?

Thanks Kate. My tree is set as private, non-searchable so that must be why I'm not getting some of the features.

My tree is private too, Jay, but I'm getting the features.

I've started colour coding my matches, but it could get complicated!

Elizabeth, presumably your private tree is indexed (searchable) and Jay's isn't.
