    This wouldn't really help me, I have had a parent that tested so by default it says what side they're on.

    That's true but for many of us that's NOT the case! I just had a new person in my line test and he came IN with this on his new matches..An immediately started working on it.. He's older than me.. I'm 75 and have children grandchildren and sister tested but no parents.. So this is great!

    I have an ancestry.com feature called "ThruLines" and it is awesome.

    It separates the maternal and paternal lines and shows how many DNA matches I have linking me to an ancestor. It solved a mystery. Now my mom and I know we descend through another Howard line, from Groves Howard, who was in the Revolutionary War.

    And I have another Revolutionary War ancestor, named Christoffel "Christopher" Stryker, on my father's side.

    And lots of other "potential ancestors" through DNA matching.

    It even has photographs of what a few of my ancestors looked like when they were alive.

    ThruLines which we've had for maybe 2 years doesn't separate into Maternal and Paternal unless you had a parent who tested. AncestryDNA New Matches.png
    These are NEW today matches that I can identify by how they match

    I never noticed ThruLines before this thread. It DOES separate maternal and paternal in the "filter". Check it out. It's neat.

    ThruLines came out early in 2019 and it only separates maternal and paternal if your tree or your matches tree has the person in it.. This new feature that only a few people have allows you to identify maternal and paternal without any trees..

    Thrulines almost always links me up with American lines, I think itís poor for British isles people.

    I have found the Thru Lines very helpful as I sort through my many matches. It neatly and concisely places all the shared matches you have through a known ancestor into one page. For example, for two of my 2nd great grandparents, I have 52 matches. it shows the ancestor at the top, the has all his descendants on a family tree form. Since I have a full tree, all his children are listed and then it shows who matches me through that particular ancestor. It makes it easy to see matches with common ancestors.
