DNA Research #DNA RE: FtDNA Family Finder test - chromosome browser #dna

Hi David,
I have seen this used quite successfully in the past. This is when you
send an email to those involved and see if you can find some common
ancestors or at least common places of origin. I suspect that this grouping
is a good indication of where the relationships might be. In other words,
this then becomes a head start for the paper trail genealogy.

This weekend I decided to use FtDNA's chromosome browser to compare
my 22 third cousin hits and found some, to me, intriguing results. I
found 3 people who share almost exactly with me an apparently
significant stretch of chromosome 2. All three of these show the
exact same similarity endpoint. Two of those same people appear to
share exactly the same 16.81 cM region with me.
