Thank you for the help, smsitton. I appreciate it.
"Many people don't get very many hints, so you aren't unusual, if your tree doesn't go back enough generations. Generally, the more robust your tree is with generations going back to colonial America, the more matches you are likely to get..."
Not true in my case. I have over 6000 people in my tree, some going back 30 generations, most of which are solidly through colonial America. I have about 3000 DNA matches, but none of them are very close, and a good deal of them provide nothing so far.
Yep, I'm looking forward to a better platform.
