Calculations for Cousins #dna


David Goldman
 

Hi, everybody. As a green new participant learning along the way and looking
for correlations, I am finding that at the known second cousin levels the
numbers of CmS on segments reach very high, like over 200. Discovering known
and unknown second cousins once removed and third cousins, however, the
numbers of CmS drop to the 90s (whereby we had great-grandparents who were
siblings). However, in both situations I have definite confirmations of
matches. So it impels me to try to figure out how apparent unknown relatives
in the 80 or 90 CmS are related. So far at least I have been unable to
confirm any matches at all below the number 90 CmS.
Just some anecdotal information.
