This helps so much, thank you Julie Kelts. I have been trying to match through the dna list, but if we don't have any ancestry matches already in the family tree, it won't connect us, am I understanding that right?
So, if I click on the dna icon on the dna family list, it shows me the ancestors of that individual with the person they are linked to on their family tree. I've been changing the comparison to compare mine with the individual who had the dna icon where I started. It never shows connections.
I'm doing this wrong?
