Very interesting and thanks, McCorkleAustin. I have to say that all of my MRCAs have been 10 gen or higher. So, if I have a distant direct ancestor who is like Prince Halehumdra the Rattled, and I have a DNA match with a couple of other people who list Halehumdra in their tree, then it's probably just coincidence because Prince Halehumdra is listed in half the trees of English American immigrants, then the DNA match is useless?

If that is so I'm in a real quandary because almost none of my matches are within the first ten or so generations shown in matches when I first pull one up. So am I just confirming something more like we all come from Adam and nothing else specific on my tree? I do have a fair amount of people on my tree. But now I feel like I've really gotten nothing out of my DNA test.
