New AncestryDNA filters

I'm not sure if or when this was announced, I've only just noticed it - Ancestry ( has updated its filtering tools for DNA results. According to a pop-up tour "You can use multiple filters at a time, including a new filter for shared DNA, to find matches more quickly."

One option that seems potentially useful is to be able to filter down searches through a custom centimorgan range.

You can also select more than one group into which you may have placed your ancestors, which could be equally handy.

I'll have a play over Christmas and see if anything emerges!
