I was playing around last night with the relationship finder, and I was confused since it seems like I was getting a lot of hits going as far back as my 15th great grandparent, however, when I did it with my third great grandparent that I know 100% I am related to, it tells me no match?

down the line it would say confidence, one in the line unconfident, and that was in some, am I doing this correctly?

I tested it further on people I know I am not related to and it indicated so.

Have you linked to that 3rd great grandparent on your branches of the tree?  It can only find connections that are actually there. On the more distant ones that you think are dubious it will be going through links by marriage and not necessarily direct line.

Rhonda, I think you are talking about DNA, instead of direct links. Your direct line only goes back to your 7th GGF.
