Autosomal DNA Triangulation / Close Relationships: S. Massey. Paternally, DNA segments shared by descendants of James' grandfather and great-grandfather via different lines have been triangulated across FTDNA/23andMe/GEDmatch.com. Furthermore, great-grandchildren of James share significant DNA (96 cM over six segments) at GEDmatch.com with A392891, a descendant of James' brother, and some of these segments overlap the segments triangulated for earlier generations. A392891 is ranked under other descendants of Jacob Massey and Mary Jane Fisher in some of the great-grandchildren's match lists at Ancestry.com. Multiple matches to descendants of James' maternal grandparents are ranked with extremely high confidence at the "4th cousin" level at Ancestry.com. (Note that no triangulation has taken place for the Fisher side, though.)
It may be possible to confirm family relationships with James by comparing test results with other carriers of his Y-chromosome or his mother's mitochondrial DNA.
However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with James:
