To people who are interested in genealogy, having potential relatives be uninterested is disappointing. That would not appear to be a hard concept to grasp.

3. Re: [DNA] FTDNA Family Finder Match [1]
I'd recommend a minimum of 5 cM if your goal is to find recent relationships. 23andMe requires that at least one segment be 7 cM before it will report a cousin match.

I have been getting the same one too. For a guy who has had a DYS716 test result. Seven times at last count. I have also complained to FTDNA Dennis Are other project administrators getting the same emails over and over, day after day, from FTDNA? Not just the same kind of email, but the exact same email, informing me of the exact same result or match. And one of the kits I directly handle is getting these too. This started on Thursday. Needless to say, I have sent a complaint to FTDNA, but I'd li
8. Re: [DNA] dbms v. spreadsheet [1]
Working with autosomal test results is not something a project admin would normally be doing. In the future, maybe, but not so far. This thread started because someone said a project admin would *have* to know SQL or someone who does to run a project. I'm only disputing that one statement. I've been running six DNA projects for six years, and I've never felt the need for using a dbms to run my projects, and I cannot foresee needing one. Whether you need to use a spreadsheet or a dbms depends more on th
9. Re: [DNA] Naming Family Finder Projects [1]
Hi, Your right that going to far back would cause a project to become to large and unmanageable,but thinking that you can't find measurable segments, isn't totally true.. they could be there. I currently share measureable segments with a cousin at 11 generations. But let's discuss the 5th generation.. 64 ancestors. (I can only name 24 of them, and I thought I was good..LOL) How do you pick your couple? 1. Just put the names in a hat and pull out a pair? 2. Pick the lineage with the most genealogy
10. Re: [DNA] Clades, Definitions, Discoveries, FTDNA [1]
With all due respect, Diana, I don't think you really understand the thing you are criticizing here. A clade is defined (or choose your preferred term) entirely by demographics. A clade exists whenever someone or something has descendants. The set which includes that MRCA and his/her/its descendants is a clade. That's pretty simple, but its an accurate description. Ken's point is that whether or not a clade comes into being is largely down to demographic factors: population sizes, populatio

Hi Robert Andrew Lancaster recently posted something about R1 modals for FTDNA 67 + 9. I think I've misinterpreted that to mean FTDNA 67 + FTDNA Panel 9, whereas I now realise that he must have meant FTDNA 67 plus the 9 markers that Ancestry DNA test that are not included in the FTDNA 67.

12. Re: [DNA] 23andMe Is Running a Special on the Ancestry Edition [1]
Tim, I guess I am one of the exceptions - I have 100% continental European ancestry - all from immigrant ancestors within past 120 years (Dutch, German and Polish) yet only have 51 RF matches, and just 5 of them are predicted to be closer than 4th cousins, but only 2 of those have responded so far. Of course all my direct immigrant ancestors came directly to Canada. Vince Tilroe On 10 March 2010 11:24, Tim Janzen wrote: > Dear Bob, > The last I heard there were about 30,00

14. Re: [DNA] English genealogy--Ancestry projects [1]
The price increase referenced may have been for the myFamily service, rather than for an Ancestry.Com account. The myFamily service can be viewed as a "front-end" to the family trees at Ancestry.Com. When a user in myFamily "Imports a Tree", a link is created to the tree in Ancestry.Com, but the tree is still maintained on the Ancestry.Com site. The new pricing is for the myFamily Groups. It has to be paid only by one person within a Group. This price is separate from fees for Ancestry.Com which are requir

This part is half true. Admins using the infamous (and possibly abandoned) Dashboard platform to generate a spreadsheet containing advanced STRs alongside standard STRs . The SNP results do, indeed, remain inaccessible.

16. Re: [DNA] Family Finder Test [1]
If some of the participants are 3rd or maybe 4th cousins, they would most likely form small clusters. Even more distant cousins can be detected, but the probablility of a match on autosomal DNA drops off rather quickly. More intriguing to me is that autosomal DNA opens up an avenue of connection for people who don't have straight male line connection to a Clan Donald participant.

19. Re: [DNA] A question [1]
The children would have less genetic diversity than they would have had if the son had mated with a woman less closely related to him. Any kind of close pairing has a higher probability of a deleterious recessive gene becoming homozygous and thus being expressed, which is just one reason such closely related matings are frowned upon. Provided the grandchildren engaged in no such similar matings, the deleterious effects would soon dissipate, and certainly there would be no long term effect -- as in "down t

The answer can only be that the people offering the tests are happy doing it the way they are doing it. Or can't figure out how to do it differently. I've seen my own raw data from 23andMe analyzed in a BGA test on up to seven "source" groups by a member of this list, so I know it can be done. And I understand the process well enough to know t

23. Re: [DNA] 23andme cousin results [1]
The percent match between a child and one of its parents will depend on how closely related the parents are to each other, and also on the set of SNPs compared. But given the array of SNPs in use today, yes 80-85% would be pretty typical. And even a full genome sequence would not reveal a match as low as 50% between parent and child. While it is true that a child INHERITS only 50% of its DNA from each parent, if the the two parents themselves have any SNPs in common (and they literally have

The Guardian has published a horribly-titled article that actually contains some quite interesting information on the inheritance of proteins for controlling the expression of genes. It is a little.... dramatic in places, but it also illustrates the huge gap between what is known and what is taught.
