I dont understand many of these Smart Matches. They often can have totally dissimilar names, both given and surname and in many times are 200 years different in thier dates of birth and or death, what gives??
I have the same problem, but it seems to only happen with my Swedish branch. Here is an example:
Ingrid Emma Paulina Axelsson in your family tree was matched to:
margareta elisabet Johansson, in a family tree of 234 people submitted by peter Arlekrans from Sweden, on MyHeritage site "Arlekrans Web Site". This family tree was last updated on Oct 26 2008.
The only thing remotely similar about those two names is the -son on the end, and that's nearly universal in Swedish names!
When I click on the link, it doesn' t bring up the presumed match:
The table below lists a possible Smart Match™ for Ingrid Emma Paulina Axelsson.
One additional Smart Match is not displayed due to strict matching settings.
