  • Purple Links

    I uploaded a GEDCom and was given a list of possible matches based on name, each with a purple link. I selected one from the list and the list disappeared -- and I can't figure out how to get it back. I have a big tree, so searching all over for purple links wasn't practical.

    I tried to re-upload my GEDCom and, when I did, I didn't get the list at all. And now I don't even have the purple links at the the possible matches within my tree.

    Any help? Thanks.

    The purple links are just to other people who have taken a DNA test that happen to have the same name as someone in your tree. This is great if the people in your tree are cousins or other living relatives, but some times it is ancestors who have been gone for a long time. No way they can be a match to a person who had been tested in FTDNA.

      Thanks, but I understand what the purple links are -- my problem is that they aren't appearing anymore, and I can't access that list of purple links that initially appeared.
