I'm taking a tip from your book and looking  at names
For comparison have found a potential 2nd cousin with 32 cm 3 segments and several 6x cousins all born between 1980,-2000
Of 11-13cm descending from 3,daughters of potential great aunt

It really helps if you have a second family member test DNA +a wide range of generations
so you can eliminate random results

I can't think who else I can ask. I shall put my thinking cap on. Would one of my children (not children any more of course) be ok or should it ne someone on my line ie. cousin?
I'm really pleased for you that you managed to find all that out. I've been watching a u-tube video about understanding cousins. I watch it and I'm understanding all that's being explained to me and he carries on and I'm with him all the way and then suddenly my brain just lets go of it. Like it's a step too far. I shall keep watching it in the hope that I will hopefully retain a little more each time I watch it.  :-[

Having a child test may be useful
Most of my close matches are approx half amount of CMS to my mum but occasionally distant matches have more CMS for me
But we're talking in range of 6cm- 15cm

But so distant probably 6th - ,8th cousins so wouldn't help your search that much .some of these matches are showing up because young people are testing .
