GEDcom Has Identified 1,200 Potential Relatives

I have just uploaded my file to GEDmatch.com and the huge number of names it now provides as potential matches. I played hookie today to get this far. But the huge learning curve this data provides tells me that I need to dedicate some time to it to get anywhere meaningful.

I started using the Triangulation Tool but there are 1,200 possible relatives from 3rd cousins to those further removed. A third cousin, if I have it right, would mean that our common ancestor was our common great-great-grandfather or mother, that is, Frank’s grandfather or grandmother.
