Re: DNA match to me but not my parents #dna

If you both upload to GedMatch your own and your parent's results and
use the "Phase" tool at GedMatch, it will split your DNA into the maternal
and paternal "slices". This will allow you to eliminate many False
Positives. 9cm is very small. If your "sliced" DNA matches still, it
will tell you >from which side of yours and which side of your friend's
parents the match exists.

There are some very good articles on this. Try googling with these
words: dna gedmatch parental phasing

(I like Blaine's article and Roberta's too)

During the last year my parents (who are 3rd cousins) and I did the
autosomal family finder test on FTDNA. One surprise was that a very
good friend and neighbor with whom I thought I had no family
relationship came up as a 5th or remote cousin on my test, with 116
Shared Cm and a longest block of 9.
He did not show up on either of my parents' tests. Can someone explain
why? I am not adopted, I show up as a daughter of each of my parents.
