The L Button on Gedmatch

I sometimes talk to myself in the third person.

Okay, I watched the Youtube video Gedmatch Basics and learned which buttons to push for "the basics."

Click the L button toward the left of the page to see a list of your matches matches. Okay. I did that.

And I had this conversation with myself.

But why? Why would I want to do that?

To see who matches them.

Why, what difference does it make who matches them? I want to know who matches me!

Well, if that person matches you, you might see the names of people on their page that are also on your page.

Okay, a lot of people are taking DNA tests.

 It may mean you all share the same common ancestor. Otherwise they wouldn't match you in the first place.
