One possibility--I took a quick look at your tree and it looks like you may have Ashkenazi ancestry. That population had a lot of intermarriage, which resulted in "pedigree collapse." That can distort the match statistics. Some of the other companies adjust for this but Ancestry hasn't said whether they are.
