DNA Research #DNA Re: Paternal and Maternal designations within Family Finder (FTDNA) #dna

I did want to add a comment about the paternal and maternal designations. I
have a 2-3 match as identified by FTDNA. However, this person, in reality,
is a 5th cousin on my paternal side-due to two different cousin marriages up
the line (confirmed in a paper trail) . Since I've identified this person
as a bona fide 5th cousin FTDNA will not list her as related on my paternal
side as they will not list maternal and paternal beyond the 3rd cousin
level.
