DNA Connections
It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Maxine or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Maxine (Martin) McReynolds: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup H5a4a, FTDNA kit #719297, MitoYDNA ID T11493 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Maxine:
  • 100.00% X DNA 100.00% Maxine (Martin) McReynolds: 23andMe, GEDmatch M943864 [compare]

Hi Maxine,

I think you missed the part on that example that says it's ... based on a DNA test match between third cousins (without complicated triangulation).

If you follow that link (which I supplied last time) you will see that for triangulation it says The parent/child relationships in an ancestral line from each tester in the TG back to (but not including) the shared ancestral couple should be marked as "Confirmed with DNA".

Since not all of your testers' profiles are public enough to work with the Relationship Finder, it is not possible to find the MRCA or the relationships between them. That is why I added the last two recommendations. If you can give them public trees it would help.

Hello Maxine,

You wrote:

.... However, the relationship is marked according to guidelines. The sources section notes the triangulation (which is used beyond third cousins -- in this case it is 4th cousins twice removed to 6th cousins). It appears to be marked correctly. Please provide further guidance if you think there is a technical issue.

Here are some problems I see:

  1. Both parents are confirmed, but only one should be, unless ...
  2. If the parents are the common ancestral couple, neither can be confirmed.
  3. The triangulation group's MRCA should be mentioned.
  4. It is good practice to give the relationships between the testers in the confirmation statement.

Maxine, I went ahead and did the Missouri one for you. If you need me to make any others just let me know. I can teach you how to do it as well.  :D

Hi Maxine! The first thing to do is to start adding the Atwood Name Study category to our Atwood profiles. Check out my other Name studies, so you can see how it is organized!! (look at my page, under the Projects scroll box..the most extensive is Binkley, right now.)

Hi Maxine, would you like to collaborate on the Atwood study? It looks like it hasn't had anything done to it since it's creation nearly a year ago. We could revive it. Or, start it. LOL

Hi Maxine

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 290 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!

Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors?

I see you have surnames for tags. Why don't you stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus. They would be happy to get you started.

Again, thanks for volunteering to work on Pre-1700 profiles.

Welcome to the DNA Project:

Please make sure each bit of DNA test information is added to the actual test participant's profile, not someone else's like your own. To make cousin connections, WikiTree needs to see the FamilyTree tab. Check that your Privacy on your profile is set to "Private with Public Family Tree" as a minimum. (Living minors should have an Unlisted privacy level.)

If you have not already done so, please set your preferences for your Tags Followed to include DNA and other terms of interest to you:

As you add your family lines and connect to the big WikiTree, you may find new cousins. Use the Relationship calculator to see if you are related to me, Cooper-1 with

Hi Maxine!

You are now a confirmed member of WikiTree! Thank you for volunteering. Your TAGS are great!! They will help you reach others searching your surnames.

Wow!!! You're the 29,170th MARTIN profile on Wikitree! I bet your 'cousins' on Wikitree will benefit greatly once you add your insightful collaboration and sourced research.

Have fun and make sure to join in the Question of the Week: Have you stumbled upon any strange deaths of your ancestors? Bizarre? Peculiar? Unusual? and share your stories!

If you need additional help, our Mentors Project is a friendly group of volunteers who are glad to assist you with WikiTree-specific problems.

See you in the branches---
