No more no less.

It is almost as if they are rationing them. It doesn't seem right that exactly 3 matches a week are found for my DNA.

Click on the notice. You'll see the rest of the new ones. They're showing the top three new matches in the email.

You must have some pretty unique DNA.

I typically will get at least half a page full of new patches every time there is a new batch. Perhaps you need to adjust the parameters (the sliding bar) on your DNA matches page since you may have it set to show only close relatives with high confidence levels. Waiting only for those who meet those strict parameters is like watching paint dry.

To see all those results you may have missed, hover over the DNA button at the top of any Ancestry.com screen. Select "Your DNA Home Page". Click the "View results" button. You have several options. You can sort the results by date (most recent) or relationship (closest match first). Most of us find we get better results if we slide the "Relationship range" bar all the way over to the right.
