The connections that are reflected on the WikiTree Relationship Finder is determined by the Ancestors and not DNA.

For example, my Relationship Finder connection with William White (from the Mayflower) was determined by the Relatives from myself to my father to my grandmother and so on and not via DNA.

If I had a WikiTree Profile without any family members/ancestors, the Relationship Finder will not connect me with anyone else.

I hope I had explained this okay via text...

Good Luck! :-)

Hello Mike.

See the answer by Sherryl Hess to your previous question:

"At this time your profile is not connected to the global tree so you won't get any "matches"

The sooner you add some ancestors and get yourself connected to the wikitree global tree, the sooner you can find out to whom you may be related."

You need to build your tree back to at least your grandparents in order to show any cousin connections.  Wikitree doesn’t match DNA, it connects people through their profiles.
