Autosomal DNA Discussion

An Ancestry match lists the amount of DNA that is shared, expressed in a unit called the "centimorgan", or cM. This can be thought of as the length of DNA that is shared. This can also be equated to the percentage of common DNA, where 106 cM = 1.56% shared.

One common goal is to estimate the degree of relationship between two people based on the amount of shared DNA they have. This is cannot be an exact estimate, especially for distant cousins. For example, theoretically, your 3rd cousin should share 0.8% or 55 cM of DNA. However, due to variations in the amount of DNA inherited from each parent, it is possible that ZERO DNA will be shared between you and a 3rd cousin. Consequently, you will have many false negatives in a DNA test between distant cousins, but few false positives.

Let's consider your 5th cousin, who should share 3.3 cM of DNA with you, on average. The Ancestry Au-DNA test does not show matches for someone with less than 6 cM shared DNA, so this 5th cousin would not appear. But is it possible that a 5th cousin can have as much as 62 cm shared DNA (based on actual data), in which case he would appear to be to be a 3rd cousin.

This is a bit like a telescope looking for dim stars. We can only see those dim stars which are bright enough, regardless of their distance from us. Similarly, when we find DNA matches with a only 6 cm sharing, they will more likely come from a cousin more distant than 5th cousin, since these are the ancestors who were lucky to transmit your common DNA. (They are the brighter stars, easier to see.)

So even cousins as distant as 8th cousins (18 steps) can have 16+ cm of shared DNA. And an ancestor out as far as 15 generations can sometimes provide enough DNA to make a positive ID. This could be 500 years or more.

Hi,

Regarding the mistress situation of https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Malpas-131.

Since the wikitree “marriage/couple page” doesn’t offer a “non-married with children” option (the unlink is for “living divorced that don’t want link on wikitree” instead of dead ancestors) I’ve found it best to just place “mistress” or “unmarried” in the “place of marriage” field to keep both parents showing on all profiles associated with the relationship.

ps - took me a while to get WikiTree to look 30 generations out for common ancestors for us, but finally managed it (399 common ancestors were found between Steve and Liz within 30 generations).

I like my trail to Berkeley-44 - my 13x-gr-grandfather & your 17th gr-grand. We also share Beauchamp-62.

Cheers, Liz

I love it when I'm surprised by a new surname (even when I'm not so sure it belongs in my tree!):

Steve and Liz are 9th cousins twice removed ... both descendants of William Ripley.

You are absolutely right and I do apologize for not communicating first. I certainly should have. I will be much more careful in the future. Thanks for pointing this out to me.

Re Lorraine-3, actually I think his brother Gilbert should be merged with their (possible) father Gilbert. The wife is clearly meant to be the unknown daughter of Lothar, who often gets given such guess names it seems. Make sense?

There is nothing wrong with my email address, as evidenced by the fact that I received your last comment and receive WT notices every day. I don't know why a notice was bounced: perhaps a temporary outage.
