*ALL* matches are based *JUST* on DNA results. (Sorry, not shouting, just being emphatic, lol.) I want to draw attention to this because it's become clear over the past few months that not everyone knows this. People have repeatedly assumed that Ancestry is taking tree data into account, but this is not the case. (Ancestry really needs to make a FAQ.)

Also, the DNA matches *don't* go back further than reasonable records for many people. (I'm speaking with Colonial/Anglo-European bias, perhaps, but then many people can do that.) It's the pie chart of ethnicity that goes back beyond the records. The matches are predicted to be within 10 generations. (I've had some be a bit further if they came from, say, intermarrying Quakers. Or so I assume - there's no way of knowing until we have raw data/segment comparison tools. Hurry up, Ancestry!)

Just had to get that off my chest. :)
