Introducing Ancestry's "New Ancestor Discoveries"

    This is a great feature of the DNA. When I didn't see any results for me I wondered why. I now believe that I've accurately built out my tree enough that the ancestors who may have shown up here, I already had in my tree. Not a problem at all. My son's DNA had two ancestors from his dad side that I had not connected. Within two days I had made the two generation further back connection. Now this feature shows no matches with JUST DNA because it's all connected correctly. :-) Nice affirmation.
