I have my Ancestry DNA results linked to my Tree. If I choose to unlink, link to a different person or different tree will I lose any of my notes, groups etc?

I assume not, but thought it best to check first.

Obviously Thrulines will be affected, presumably this will update within a day or so.

I believe these will keep as long as you don't remove the tree or individuals itself. Your right, the Thrulines will be affected.
