Problems with Connection Finder

+5 votes


I am new to WikiTree, and am having some difficulty with the Connection Finder's "Connection to AJ".

I can get from AJ to my great uncle Henry Schliephak...

Jacobs-2987 to Schliephak-1 (32 degrees)

... and I can get from my great uncle to myself David Kammerling  ...

Schliephak-1 to Kammerling-1 (3 degrees).

So, I conclude that I am connected to AJ. It should be 35 steps.

However, I can't get the Connection Finder to connect between AJ and myself 

Jacobs-2987 to Kammerling-1 (No Connection Found)

As another test, I can't even get a connection from AJ to my great uncle's father Max Schliephak who should be only one step further than my great uncle.

Jacobs-2987 to Schliephak-3 (No Connection Found)

When it finds no connection, it is almost instantaneous. Almost as if it isn't actually searching at all, and just giving a failed result.

Can anyone help explain what might be going wrong.

The long-distance connections only work to the people shown (AJ, Queen etc) and rely on daily updates.  Looks like you missed yesterday's run.

Should be OK by tomorrow, whenever that is in your time zone.  Allow say 32 hours from connecting the profile.

The connection worked the very next day as you suggested. Thanks.
