    In “Diahan’s Rules for labeling” it states “Every Shared Match gets a dot”

    Interesting section on using dots to label pairs of ancestors, not just individuals. I did learn several new things.

    Always learn something new from Diane. I’m totally going to adopt Kelli’s spreadsheet method!
