There is a lot of randomness in the process of passing autosomaltoggle quoted message Show quoted text
chromosome segments to the next generation; by the luck of the draw,
it is possible for a woman and her sister's grandson to have no
segments in common in the Family Finder test, yielding a false
negative test. I don't think this this situation is common, but I
don't have enough knowledge and experience to put a probability on it.
There are others on the SIG who know more than I do, so hopefully
someone will come up with an estimate.
