Got my Ancestry DNA results last week and have now discovered (or in some cases reconnected with) several 3rd or 4th cousins. In each case, there is a documented trail.
I'm not clear on how to identify and flag the common ancestors using the various pairings of DNA results. For example, my father's 2nd cousin (who is 94!) matches with me. We share a set of ancestors (my great great grandparents, his great grandparents). Can I link his results with his profile, or does it need to be done from his end (he is not internet-savvy, but has someone helping him)? Can I then indicate in some way that our gg grandparents are likely correct?
I'm sorry if this has been covered before. I did look at previous postings, but still have no clue how this works :(
