    New Layout for Matches

    I just stumbled upon a new configuration for DNA matches.. Closest matches first of course and then you can switch to Common Ancestors which has a sort of "ThruLines" feature..
    Anyone else see it?

    I believe that’s been around for a while. What I like about it, among other things, is that it allows you to see how you may be connected to trees that are “Locked” by their owners.

    I only know one other person who has it right now.. It must be Beta still.. It's NOT ThruLines but I saw how I was related to a person I wasn't sure of.

    When I pick closest matches and common ancestors, what I see when I click on a match is a new page that shows me how I match that person, along with our two common ancestors, both paternal and maternal. Who are displayed in a box on the lefthand side of the page. If I click on the paternal ancestor, it sends me to a new page that shows me how we both may be descended from that same ancestor. With each of our lines of descent presented side by side. Is that what you’re talking about?

    Doesn't appear to be in public beta yet, nothing in the 'extras' section of .com or .co.uk either.

    Sounds like a helpful step forward in a similar way to ThruLines was and similar clustering type tools elsewhere. It's something that many of us have been doing manually with Ancestry, but automation is of course very much welcomed. Look forward to using it when active.

    Appreciate the heads up Kathlingram

    They DO Share % of the match.. I can see that my grandson shares 27% ( I estimated 30%) helpful.. my own first cousin shares 13% and a man who we can see has to be our first cousin from an uncle shares 14%.. All of that helps

    I and everybody I know has had this for at least 12-18 months.
    Where you can get some of these Common Ancestor designations suddenly appearing is if some match already there updates their tree.
    Or someone does who connects the two of you.

    That’s been my experience, too. Apparently, Kathlingram is seeing something new on her account. Whatever it is, when they finally roll it out, I’ll see it too.

    Nope Not talking about ThruLines which is old stuff.. This seems to be a Beta which a few people have or had.. some in other countries.. I am in US.. Someone I know well has it but says it was hard to work..
    Screen shot.. First time that Ancestry Showed % I think.. My grandson is 27% ..I had estimated 30% prior to this..

    I see, it does look slightly different than mine. You have percentages and a view match button. Whereas I have to tap on the matches name to view and don’t have any percentages. Would you mind showing a screen shot of how it looks when you view a match?
