"Confident" is a Relationship Status level. When should you use it?

Confident Status for Fathers and Mothers

Confident is the only level between Uncertain and Confirmed with DNA, so it can cover a broad range of levels of genealogical certainty, including when there is DNA evidence to support a genealogical conclusion but it doesn't meet the defined standards for using Confirmed with DNA.

Confident is intended to be a non-specific middle level between the specifically-defined Uncertain and Confirmed with DNA levels. Our community attempts to define the types of sources that would make a relationship Uncertain or Confirmed with DNA, but defining all the sources that could make a relationship Confident would be nearly impossible since it has to cover everything in between.

Nevertheless, cite your source! Never select Confident without citing sources.
