Hot Matches

I found an article which told me there was a 'Discard' button at the top and bottom of the Hot Match page. However I do not have it on my page. How do I delete matches which are wrong? :-(

Are you sure they are ‘hot matches’ as that hasn’t been around for years. It’s when the site used to run a comparison of your tree names to others on the site. They’d flag them up & notify you about once a month. You’d often find the notification on the Home page.

If you’re referring to the rosettes shown against someone’s name on your tree, then No, there’s no way to delete them.

If you still have the hot matches page you can click on a name then on that page click the discard all contact with....and it will discard it from the list.....but I think it will still show on your tree in the little rosette.
