Re: especially long matching DNA segment #dna

Ellen,
I am in the same boat. I have one match with 4 segments (My Heritage) but
the longest is 66.6 cMs and my match has only three surnames in his tree.
And common matches >from both sides of my family. Any and all suggestions
welcomed.

Can someone please explain if there is any significance to a DNA match that
is relatively small, but that has one very long matching segment.

I have one instance where the total amount of matching DNA is only 59.9
centiMorgans, but there is one shared segment of 45.5 cMs.
I have a 2nd instance where the total amount of matching DNA is only 85
centiMorgans, but there is one shared segment of 57.6 cMs.

Thank you.
