    Default Baffled by DNA!

    Hi
    I'm a new poster.

    I recently did my DNA through Ancestry, and it came back with over 48000 matches. I don't know if that's a lot, normal, low...!

    My question is....
    I click on a match that says we are 5-8th cousins but we don't any other shared matches.
    This happens more often than not and I can't get me head round why.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mark

    Ancestry doesn't show shared matches under 20cM so you may well have shared matches at lower amounts. Do you ever read Lost Cousins? Peter is very good at explaining tricks and strategies. best wishes, cicilysmith
