Re: Help = Ancestry DNA .. is it worth looking below 2nd Cousin if no proof in trees or known relatives? #dna

I have to somewhat disagree with your statement about the person not appearing on a sibling’s list , not being related…  DNA is not evenly distributed so sometimes a sibling may or may not get the same DNA or DNA from the same person.  I have found many family members who I  know I am related to and have shared DNA with and then there are others that should be matches to, because they match other family members on the list, but they don’t…

An opinion.

 

Try to have more than one known relative to submit DNA. Best a sibling.

If a person is your 3rd cousin, but does not appear in your sibling list,

they are probably not relatives.

 

But if a person appears in both lists, they may very well be related.

 

Israel does not permit home DNA test for genealogy, but I found the

children of my mother's second cousin in the north by studying

pages at Yad VeShem. It turned  out that they are interest and tracing

genealogy for years. Neither of us had any idea we exist, DNA

would have found us earlier and showed that we are related.

 

My grandfather stayed with a family in London after WWI, how

are we related to this family was found a couple of years ago

using DNA result communications tools.

 Ancestry - is it worth looking below 2nd Cousin if no proof in trees or known relatives and Jewish on both sides of the families?
Was told not to bother with anything below 4th in 4th Cousin by speaker in a local talk, however told also by another researcher that the DNA is magnified once it gets past 2nd cousin? I am on Ancestry, My Heritage and GEDmatch. (love the GEDmatch tools) to compare and do the wider searches.

Thanks in advance
