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.
