Well, last night was different - AncestryDNA added a new search. I can search all the trees of my matches for family names or locations.
This is a great help. I put "Giddens" in the search and could see all those who also have a Giddens in their tree. It won't tell me how I am related, but only that there is a possiblity. However, this gives me a good direction for my research. So far, I found some really good clues for my Glynn, Giddens, Bryan and Hairston family research.
It's not a perfect solution. Some matches don't have family trees and if the researcher has incorrect information, I might be barking up the wrong tree.
So thank you to AncestryDNA. I love the new search, but still want a more "advanced search" such as a chromosome browser. I don't like having to spend more money to submit my DNA to other sites.
