Default Living DNA update

If you have uploaded your DNA to Living DNA (partnered with Findmypast), you should check your DNA matches because they have recently done an update which means you should have lots more matches than you did before.

Unfortunately their default for displaying the match's name is initials only unless the person has gone into their profile to set a display name. If you haven't done this then you should. It's not very useful to see a list of matches with initials only, and no family trees yet!

As far as I know, they haven't sent emails out to members telling them about the update. Unless it has gone into my spam folder.

Ah, it's showing mostly full names of matches now, thank goodness. Might actually be some use now.

And they must have done another update today, because my number of matches has gone up by about 10%. Unfortunately, sorting by Date Added doesn't bring to the top those who weren't on the list before, so I suppose I will have to go through them one by one.
