    What is the relevance of 25 marker matches when both have 37 marker tests with no close matches at the 37 marker level? Conversly, what if you have 37 marker matches but they don't show up on the 25 marker match list?

    It only means that you are not very closely related.

    A match at 25 markers but not at 37 markers usually means that you are very distantly related, and that any common ancestor you share lived long before surnames were adopted.

    Some people choose via Setup Preferences to only display matches at the 37 marker level, to avoid seeing a bunch of "false positives". You would only see them in your 37-marker list, not the 25 marker list.
