I plan to upgrade during their fall sale. At least one of the William b.1580 trees in group 1 seems valid so the project leader considers this to be the group for william's line.

Groups 1 and 3 differ by 4 STR markers in just the Y-12 set alone (DYS390, DYS392, DYS458, DYS449). There are useful charts to help interpret this, such as the one below:


According to this one, three differences mean that individuals in those groups are probably not related in “recent or distant genealogical times”. These are probabilistic results, and additional testing is always encouraged, but in this case I doubt that it would change the basic conclusion that individuals in these two groups are “genetically distant”.

I'm not sure, but I think recent privacy changes make some of the lines may only appear if you are a member of FtDNA.

Good morning! Thank you for your comment: "well my Morgan cousin, despite all the green, gedmatch said we have no dna matches, but the tree disagrees. happy hunting." This relative occured before 1700 which makes a dilute gedmatch. Try setting cm size sensitivity to 4 and you will spot a nearly 5cm match. This makes sense for a distant relative so far away.  :) Blessings!! Cindy
