Anyone know about the Leed system?

Someone posted a link to the Leed sytem for searching dna and I have a question but cant find the link.

It uses excel and color coding. I inputted all the ancestry names of my friends 1 thru 3 rd cousins and who was mutual. Im really happy with the results. However she shows a group of 7 people connected to her and each other but I cant find the connection. Third cousins shouldnt be that hard. Im guessing an adoption or something but I dont even see a mutual location.

Did you identify groups for the 4 grandparents? Is this mystery group a 5th group? How strong is the strongest match in the group?
ok, I cant seem to move this to one drive or post it here so Ill try facebook. The first 4 columns are her fathers side, the next 3 are her mothers side. The last 2 I have no idea.

her strongest matches in each are a 1st cousin on her mothers side 420cM across 18 seg; her fathers side 345 cM across 13 seg; unknown 314cM across 12.
I meant, how strong is the strongest match in the mystery group who is not also in another group? So a first cousin is too close of a match.

With only three groups on the mothers side, one or both mystery groups could be the fourth group. My mother's grandfather was the only one of his siblings to have children with living descendants. And in fact none of his father's siblings have living descendants either. So my mother's group that would correspond to her grandfather splits into smaller, weaker groups corresponding to that grandfather's maternal and paternal sides.

Or if the mystery group matches are quite distant, they could be on the same line as one of the groups you already have, but just not match people in the group you already have because the relationships are too distant.
none of the 7 in the unknown group match with any one else on the 1 to 3rd cousins list. The highest in that group is 314cMs across 12 segments.
Ive already confirmed how 6 of the 7 are related to each other. One of the sons of their common ancestor married my friends grandmothers sister. They are related by marriage. Im hoping I'll eventually find the blood line connection.
