Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / ftDNA and GEDMatch giving different results
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 03:40 GMT (UK)  »
having uploaded my ancestrydna raw data to ftDNA, my second highest match was to  a gentleman named Bill with    shared centimorgans=68,Longest Block 19 Predicted 2nd-4th Cousin

I made contact and it turns out he is the first cousin of Dick who is the husband of the lady I made contact with. Several of Bill and Dicks relatives have taken DNA tests which are all uploaded to GEDMatch. Comparing them to me on GEDmatch

Bill who is Dicks 1st Cousin:  9.8 on chromosome 9
Dick                   3.6 on chromosome 3
Dicks Sister Judy      3.7 on chromosome 3    6.6 on chromosome 6
Dicks first son ,      0
Dicks second son.      3.6 on chromosome 3
Dicks daughter.        3.6 on chromosome 3

So two questions
1) ftDNA and GEDMatch have significantly different analysis between  Bill and me ?  Which one to believe??   
2)  Does this cluster of low cm matches to several members of the same family add any creedence to me being related to them?

My GM's birth certificate says she was born in Arnold Street, Blackpool  1905

I know of Arnold Avenue ( I even went to school there !  )  ,  but not Arnold Street

Did Arnold Street exist ?

Thanks in advance

There was an article in the Cumberland News ( details below)

Cumberland news  date 24.08.2007
p36 History and photo of house - Denis Perriam. Photo taken in 1971 shows the house in the background but it did not remain much longer

My father was evacuated there in WW11 but he remembers very little. I am hoping a picture and some details may jog his memory.

Many Thanks :)
