It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other
carriers of her mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Elizabeth:
Bigelow-1082 and Bigelow-46 appear to represent the same person because: Same names, same spouses, same children (daughters each with same married last name, alternate spellings of Olmstead/Olmsted.). Bigelow-1082 is a newly created duplicate profile, as with a lot of other newly created duplicate Olmsted profiles by same profile manager. Please merge. Thanks
