Thomas, You "strongly suggest" that they are related.
That is quite interesting and why I'm posting.
Familytreedna says that they do not match at 25
markers and are likely not related--that is the
reason I'm trying to decipher the genetic distance
here, at least how Family tree dna calculates it. I
know the difference at 449 is a distance of 2 by
their stepwise model. I'm not sure if the distance
at 464 is a 1 or 2 by their approach.
Either way, the two family groups are off by a
distance of 3 or 4, which by my understanding at 25
markers means they are likely not related. Please
correct me if I'm wrong here.
