I have another 2nd Cousin Question. I am "Says Ancestry DNA" a strong Second Cousin . Strong does not mean muscular because its a SHE. I look at her tree to make me a 2nd Cousin of which there is none due to people in the Great Grandfathers kids never as I see having children. Also their Location in Michigan is not close to Port Huron where I am 100% sure my Birth Mother is at in 1948 March to be exact. What I do have is that Her (2nd cousin's) Grandpa Living in Port Huron at that time and within 7 Blocks away from my Biological mother. His (the grandpa's) wife was pregnant.because His daughter was born in March 1948. I already have confirmed that the Wife of this Grandpa never forgave him due to his infidelity (confirmed 3 sources). Being Grandpa's SON would make me not the Second Cousin but indeed an Uncle. Is this an ERROR in DNA calculations? This is very confusing because the Grandpa was a Chippewa Chief and Native american. I have no Native American DNA showing up. I have No dark skin tone , in fact I'm Blond Blue eyed light complected. The family member that could give me Y DNA will not take the test and is stubborn and refuses because I do not match his looks in any way. I have given Privacy notification to him that ancestry advised for me to send to some how make him realize it is just Y dna. I have even offered to Pay him and I bought the Kit already. When is 2nd Cousin an Uncle?

When ancestry give a likely relationship, it's based on the number and size of DNA match(es).  It's not a guarantee but a guide to allow you to figure out if it matches what you know from regular genealogy.  Thus I have first cousin once removed which (using the GEDmatch info) should be 2.5 generations, but is actually 2.3.  This can just be because of random flux or because there is more than one line of  connection.  And as far as DNA connection cousins and uncles/aunts and direct ancestors are somewhat interchangable; the known (or suspected) genealogy  should let you figure it out.

Finally that makes some sense. Thanks Dave I can tell My Second Cousin I am perhaps her Uncle due to the sentence somewhat interchangablity. And to take it a step further for us I did not get her Native American DNA from the Parent.
