Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Re: Daft question re dna shared match

Ah I see, thanks for your reply and explanation.

I find it amazing how others sort through their matches and actually work out who is the common ancestor.

And my partner matches on chromosome 1 and 14, with sections of 13, 14 and 21 and 22 shaded.

I have now done gedmatch and myself and my partner don't come up as a match.

I've had a look at the tools on myheritage. I match on chromosomes 4,5, 10 and 21, with a part of 21 shaded ( as well as a part of 22 shaded, but have no match on this on).

From what you say Bates51, you can determine which side (paternal/maternal) you match with from which chromosome you match with?

Or have I jumped to the wrong conclusion?....

AS you can tell, I am on the very first step of understanding dna.

Thank you for your replies.
 
This is the information I have:

Estimated relationships
3rd - 5th cousin?
DNA Match quality?
0.5% (35.2‎ cM)
Shared DNA
4Shared segments
12.3‎ cM
Largest segment

This is from my heritage, not ancestry.

I will read through the 'Ancestry Oddity' post, thank you for pointing it out. Hopefully it will sink in my brain.

And thanks - I'll do that on gedmatch and see what happens.

Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Daft question re dna shared match
« on: Sunday 24 July 22 16:39 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

I have received a matches email which has puzzled me and I'm hoping someone far better than me has some insight or answers.

I have a dna site account which has myself and my partner under one sign in, and I manage it for both of us. On scrolling down the matches email I saw a name that is a match for me, and then, scrolling down, they also match with my partner. It's definitely the same person. We both share 3-5th cousin matches with this person.

Does this mean that myself and my partner are distantly related? Or is it just me overthinking this??

Thanks for any help, as I'm struggling with understanding dna.

Plenty to think about - thanks very much to all who have taken the time and trouble to help. Thank you!

If it is the person suspected, then he worked as a book-keeper/soap merchant at Lever Brothers. But I'm not so sure as even though they dressed in their best for photo's, would he have had such a coat?

That's great, thank you very much Treetotal - that looks much much better!!

That's very interesting, jim1. Would a book-keeper/clerk wear such a coat or even a tailor/outfitters salesman?

Thank you for your insight. I was pondering on his long coat, and wondered if it might help date the photo. So anytime up to 1910, which narrows it down for me.
