Re: Help = Ancestry DNA .. is it worth looking below 2nd Cousin if no proof in trees or known relatives? #dna
Thank you so much everyone, I really appreciated your help and sorry for the delay in replying.
I have my Aunt and Uncle and a few cousins on Ancestry and 4 cousins - the lowest of these known ones is 109cm and 8 segments, anything below this and it feels like a needle in a haystack. I have colour coded, cross ref and looked at the long segments on GEDmatch, but I have very little information and it appears to be very mathsy and guesswork. I have managed to find my G grandmothers maiden name from an English record and her birth records from Slovakian church records with her mothers name which would be my GG grandmothers (I am 99.9% sure of the latter), which gives me another generation of names hopefully to work with - HALASA.
It has become a quest and the older I get the more frustrated I get, I'm gathering everyone must feel this way?
Thank you again I will try and sift through the bits here I haven't done. I did go to Rootstech, (it's FREE online conference if anyone is interested in Feb), but when they started doing the maths, it all got so deep I got lost! I am no master at any of it.
Have a relaxed Boxing evening
