Hi, Sigurður,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

Use the Pre-1700 Projects list to find one which best fits your research focus, whether time period, location, or topic. Read the goals and tasks of the project and join if it is a good fit.

Add the project tag to your Following list to be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

Greetings cousin! (6th half cousin once removed). Welcome to Wikitree!

Thank you cousin!

Sorry for the late reply. I got lost on other DNA genealogical sites for some time. But I'm back on here in full force. One of the things that I've been obsessed with trying to figure out is where the missing NPEs, that are messing up my DNA matches, fit in my tree. I now strongly suspect that one of them fits in the slot where Guðmundur Guðmundsson sits in my tree. Breaking up our shortest connection (1/2 6C1R). But that is not our only connection so even if that turns out to be true then we are still cousins ;-) ... just a little farther back... in line with the numerous small size segments (3cM) we share on GedMatch. Kind regards Your Icelandic cousin Siggi Jónas
