I have a couple different issues here.
I have taken my DNA test on FamilyTreeDNA and added on GedMatch. I have a slew of 3rd to 5th and 4th to distant cousin matches who are Australian/New Zealanders and whose family tree is Australian/New Zealand until you get back to English/Scottish ancestors who immigrated there many generations back. I know a good bit about my more recent ancestors and am sure that from my great-grandparents down that no-one has been there expect my grandmother when she was well past having children. I know my 2% English DNA which doesn't line up with their's and 94% of the rest is likely German/West European. (4% came up as not statistically significant split between Finland and what has to be my Polish Robaskievicz DNA)
In fact, my first brick wall is my great-great-grandfather who was supposed to be a trucker that knocked up my great-great-grandmother. She was unwed and gave the baby to her married sister and her husband. Most of my searching is hoping to find out more about him. (The baby- my great-grandmother, is the profile I added below. She was given her uncle's surname Green at birth. Her aunts and mother's maiden name should be Lisk)
I also have a ton what are supposed to be 2-4th cousins and 3-5th cousins who I can only find a link 10 generations back. I do have one that I've found three different branches with links to- 10th cousins, 11th twice removed and I forget the third way. The DNA chunk should be too large to just be tiny bits from 10th-great-grandparents added together though.
I know my DNA didn't get swapped at the lab because I do have matches with known relatives. So either that trucker really got around, or somethings not adding up right.
So does anyone have any German-DNA Australian truckers in your family tree? Or similar problems with matches?
