Magda, here is how I would approach it.  Use the one-to-many BETA tool.  Search and then click twice on the sort arrows for the Autosomal Longest column.  This will sort the data so the longest matches are first.  Some of the matches have trees attached for you to search.  I would also email all longest matches greater than 20 cM.  Unfortunately, few people respond, especially with kits as old as these.  The blue hyperlink in the longest column will give you some more detail on the match.

One thing I do not understand is how good the match is when the total match is not that much larger than the longest match.  Perhaps someone call comment on that.
