I've dabbled with Genealogy on and off for years, trying unsuccessfully to trace my Wilhelm line to Germany and I am really excited to see what the advent of DNA cousin-matching will bring to this endeavor when coupled with sites like WikiTree.
Paternal relationship confirmed by a GEDmatch test match between John Wilhelm GEDmatch H273584 and his paternal aunt Victoria (Wilhelm) Jones GEDmatch A339665. Their MRCAs are John's grandparents (Victoria's parents) Carl Wilhelm and Mabel (Rogers) Wilhelm. Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 1.5, based on sharing 1845.4 cM across 43 segments.
Paternal relationship is confirmed by a triangulated group consisting of John Wilhelm GEDmatch H273584, Joshua Weed GEDmatch A265003 and Jeff Danner GEDmatch T097620 sharing a 6.39 cM segment on chromosome 2 from 46927375 to 54354529.
