Hot Matches

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

99% of the HotMatches I get are with people I'm already in touch with.

The other 1% I've given up sending messages to, because they're obviously not using the site ~ nobody responds.

What's the point?

Sorry....Just reread it again....I thought you said hot flushes....Seriously I can't get around the hot matches either...Just keep adding to the trees....LES.

I found that after about 1 year the hot matches just became a waste of time.

Same matches appeared again and again.

Found more using the search facility for myself. Yes it is time consuming, but what I did was just do the brick walls first.

Usually as hot as a damp Swan Vesta :-(

You are lucky you get the error message!!!

When I get Hot Matches - I have had 2 today- by the time I find what they are referring to, it turns out they have no connection to me.

Can anyone help? Everytime I log on there are messages telling me I have new Hot Matches. When I click on the relevant part of the message I keep getting an error message so am unable to see the new Hot Match. What do I need to do? With over 3000 names in my tree I can't wade thru all of them to try and find the new match. Jeff
