Someone asked me privately “why there is no DNA listings on Rene Reaume 1642-1722? Only 2 of his 14 children have any listings.”
I can give a simple explanation regarding autosomal DNA results.
Robert Reaume-422 is my 7th GGfather and 6 people show sharing Au DNA, (Not me).
J Bte. Reaume-243 is my 6th GGfather and 3 people show sharing Au DNA including me.
A (too) simple explanation is I get twice as much DNA from my 6th GGfather as I do from my 7th GGfather. But Rene Réaume-324 is my 7th (and 8th ) GGfather so I would be closer to Rene than Robert.
