As an aside ...
Just a thought ...
IF, you have not already; THEN, ...
You can always try (BYU) "RelativeFinder".
(BYU) "RelativeFinder" digs (pun intended) a lot DEEPER in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', than 'FamilySearch' does.
(BYU) "RelativeFinder" is one of the "Third Party" Applications that "Certified" to work with "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
BYU = Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah, USA (ie. the Church University).
From the "Family History Technology Laboratory", of the "Computer Science" Department.
Here is direct link to "RelativeFibder"
Apart from the "Important" people (including those from the "Mayflower"), from "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch', that can be found in (BYU) "RelativeFinder", that may be connected/linked to you ...
And, there are specific 'Groups' ...
But, not limited to ...
▬ Mayflower Passengers
▬ Mayflower relative
And, more ...
There are also some other options ...
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between yourself and a "Deceased" individual/person in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between two (x2) "Deceased" individuals/person in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'
There is an option to see if there is a 'Connection' between ("Living" - Users/Patrons) Friends in "Family Tree" of 'FamilySearch'.
Give it a go ...
There are many 'Bells and Whistles' that you might find useful in "RelativeFinder".
And, just for some 'light' bedtime reading ...

I hope this helps.
I am not 100% sure (I haven't looke too deeply into it), but that may just be similar to a record hint in that FamilySearch's system thinks that a relative of an ancestor has common links in your tree. Anyone else know more about this?
normally you can use the "View Relationship" link to see relationships like this.
but this assumes
1) that the relationship is actually recorded in FS FT (which it may not be)
2) That it is within the range of generations that the "view relationship" function can detect. (as an example I don't think you will get any results on a connection that is 20 generations back)
William Mullins is ID 9WZ5-B59. If you go to his page and click on 'View My Relationship' a relationship screen will come up and show your ancestry line back to William Mullins. Thomas Rogers is ID LZG9-SMC and you could do the same with the 'View My Relationship'. It should work especially since FamilySearch notified you that you were related.
Thank you Patricia, I already knew the ID Numbers, my problem was making the "proper" connections in my tree. View my relationship does not work with Rogers, and with Mullins there is a break with his mother (no father listed) in my tree.
Thank you so much Brett for the useful information!!! I will look around on those sites, thanks so much!
Wow Brett!! My husband and I have really enjoyed the information that was available on the RelativeFinder website you gave me Very useful, thank you so much!!!!!!!!
