Fellow WikiTree volunteer Greg Slade is 16 degrees from Karen Hoy (7C1R).
She and I are related as 9C, but curiously the connection finder provides a different path which is also 19 degrees. Since we're both partly French Canadian, we share many other ancestors it seems: "42 common ancestors were found between Karen and JN within 15 generations."
For anyone possessing the technical knowledge of the algorithms running the Connection Finder, how does it choose between two relationship paths of equal length?
I'm 15 from Doc Holliday due to the marriage of Rebecca Medlock (dau/of Thomas) who married Solomon Manual Baker ... rather a convoluted path involving the Glover and Cloud family ... Thomas Medlock is my paternal granny Harriet Mary Medlock's grandfather by his 1st wife; Rebecca (Medlock) Baker was the dau of Thomas' 3rd wife [only wives #1, #3, and #4 had issue)
