  2. Who can be a DNA Match?

    Can you claim to have a DNA Match to someone who, for example, was born in 1840 and obviously had never had an Ancestry DNA test? I thought DNA Matches were only for those basically still living, who have done the DNA Test, and that ancestors would be a DNA Connection. A contact has a...

  5. DNA advice

    I've just received my DNA results and as expected 94.8% British but 5.2% Asia (Northwest Caucasus) which was a total surprise. How accurate is 5.2 %?

  14. Does DNA disprove traditional genealogy?

    I have taken the liberty of starting this thread with a post from a different thread as I feel it is worth considering own its own merits. In answer to Michelle I would say in perhaps 50 or 100 years this might be a real problem but not at present. Why do I say that, simply because DNA...
