    In the groups relevant for me the surnames are just representatives of the regional ethnic group, not necessarily my family tree. The names listed are just the most common names of the whole cluster, so if the cluster is a geographical region, of this geographical region. That's all. It might be a hit, by chance, by probability, because if Schmidt and Wagner are frequent, chances you got it, somewhere in your tree. If a name in a village appears over and over again in the church book, and I know my ancestors lived in that village for many hundreds of years more, chances are just extremely high that this surname will appear, sooner or later, in my tree too. For many names that was indeed the case, first I read them in a church book for other entries again and again, and after some generations one of this family appeared, was the husband or wife.
    So don't give too much to the few names they list, these are just the common names for your cluster, whether you have them proven in your record or not.
