"In both cases, I only looked at the pedigree view to find the matches."

Interesting because I usually end up on a pedigree view to make sense out of everything, yet every time I open a DNA match I'm presented with the "family" view. No big deal, but does anyone know if this is a built-in default that can be changed?

"I automatically skip any trees that have Julius Caesar and Charlemagne as ancestors."

Could you tell me your reasoning for this? I don't know anything about Julius Caesar, but many "British Isles to colonial Virginia" ethnicities have a Carolingian, Capetian, Plantagenet component. See this entry in Wikipedia (I know. Not always a terrific source).

I'm just wondering whether you think it's non-provable, or subject to too much corruption from "copy-and-paste"? Wouldn't it be possible that even though the final leg of the ancestry is wrong, there might be usable facts in the newer end? So why just cavalierly reject it?
