Why is it that some people contact web site to show they might have a match and you send them a message and do not reply it's very annoying as I have quite a few of these and on checking out there could be a connection.

GR hot matches don't come from people? they are a feature of GR that use an automated system to generate these matches,

As for them being hot or matches? thats another story

I have had good replies to most requests if we have a match.

However a few of the lists of matches DO NOT match and when I go further down to check on matches instead of possible matche names listed I find that there is a RANGE OF NAMES listed with no possible match.

When looking at your new feature LIST I found a match with EVANS FAMILY TREE and it started to make a list but with over 93 thousand names listed at the top it would seem that it would take days to copy the list so I stopped it and instead of going back to start where I could look at some of the names it just said that I had discarded that hot match and I cannot find it again. I am looking for EVANS - GLAZEBROOK - POOLE
