Yes, when you upload a GEDCOM now, the match program will appear. I used it last week. I recommend uploading no more than a 50-person GEDCOM at a time. (That's just my humble opinion.)

Wise words, Jillaine, at least, until we get more comfortable with using it.

Fifty people, Jillaine? Wow.

Joe, are you asking if it works if you have already imported a GEDCOM? It won't work on past uploads, but this is what FindMatches is for. GEDMatches is essentially just an extension of FindMatches to work on GEDCOMs before they're imported.

Also, we added MatchBot to do some of the FindMatches work in the background, so you wouldn't have to keep re-running it.

I agree ... The first time I started with over  1000 individuals and after several hours on 47 potential matches I decided to delete the file without importing.  I restarted with less than 50 and less than half dozen matches.  This made it much much simpler.
