Thanks Garstonite,

I registered for the free account yesterday and was looking at the surnames on the map, a very interesting feature.  It certainly gives you some different possibilities or directions to look in.

It is free for the basic version. I think it is French, not German though.

Yes, I was just reading more about the website and saw it's French, it must be because I was looking up a name and place in Germany that I got a search result with pages in German and incorrectly assumed it must be a German website.

thanks

Martin, this morning I was looking at the map feature which shows instances/frequencies of a surname in say 1800, 1900, etc, and it was possible to zoom in to refine the results.

Yesterday I managed to get a list of people with the same surname in the same place (quite small) but couldn't seem to recreate that today. 

Hope you find something interesting,

Lisa

Hello,

I came across this French (at first I presumed it was German as the pages were in German from my search) genealogy site https://de.geneanet.org/ whilst googling for some names and seemed to be able to view a few results before the website wanted me to register for a free account to continue.

Does anyone have experience of this site?
I think it was just name and email required to register and it would be a free account but wasn't sure if it was committing me to anything else.
I don't really want to take out another paid sub right now, but this looked interesting and potentially useful.
thanks

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Aunt nephew shared dna

Have you done a DNA test? If so, with which site?

not yet, am thinking of doing the ancestry one.

I just found/read the ancestry article about centiMorgans, though I haven't found it particularly easy to find the info on ancestry so far

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Aunt nephew shared dna

For example:



I share 199.7 cMs with a 2nd cousin  and 226 cMs with a 1st cousin once removed.  They are from the same line.

When I compare them in My Heritage, they only share 19.3 cMs.

This is

Me with  A = 199.7
Me with B = 226
A with B = 19.6

You can't do this three way comparison in Ancestry. They only give the shared cMs with me.

thank you, I find the numbers very interesting, so I would like to 'get some' from a test, and probably 'me + a match' would be enough to start with,

I've just looked at the shared DNA between two of my cousins

I share 199.7 cMs with a 2nd cousin  and 226 cMs with a 1st cousin once removed.  They are from the same line.

When I compare them in My Heritage, they only share 19.3 cMs.

sorry to 'interrupt' the thread, which I've been  following with interest.
The numbers that you mention, do you get these cM's shared numbers with an ancestry dna test or are those from somewhere else?

thank you,
