Scotland / Re: How is the surname Angely pronounced please?

Thanks rosinish. 

I can see on ScotlandsPeople that there are records for what could be similar surnames, but it depends on how the surname is pronounced.

The match's tree has an ancestor in Aberdeenshire with this surname in the mid 18th century, but I don't know how they came by this information.

Have just come across a DNA match with a Scottish ancestor with this surname.

There's a fix for the Ancestry file discussed here:

The tool is here:

If you wish you can PM me and I'd be very happy to have a look at your Gedmatch file.  Do you recognise any relatives at Gedmatch at all?

I'm not sure.

I recommend you use a database with a chromosome browser.  Gedmatch is particularly useful because you can also see how other people match each other. 

For example if you share a segment with a known relative of your mother, and also match an unknown person at that same region but they do not match your mother, then you will know that the segment you share with the unknown person is from your father. 

If any of your matches at FamilyTreeDNA are known aunts, uncles or 1st, 2nd or 3rd maternal cousins you can link them to your tree and anyone who shares the segments with you and these relatives will show as maternal relatives.

Have you considered uploading to FamilyTreeDNA, MyHeritage and Gedmatch?

One of my parents had no recognisable paternal matches until I uploaded their DNA to another database.

According to ISOGG you have about a 50/50 chance of matching a 4th cousin.

I've seen it in my family.  Some of us don't match our fourth cousins, but others do.

My 5xgreat grandfather is his 4xGreat grandfather

You have about a 50/50 chance of being a DNA match with a 4th cousin (so you'd be sharing gtgtgt-grandparents) and this relationship is more distant than that.  Sometimes you will match a 5C1R though, but it's not unusual that you don't match.

Yes, I realise it's the paternal side you're hunting.  Maternal matches are still useful though for eliminating matches.
