Could someone help me out here?, As I can not tell if this women is a aunt or a half sibling. (I have just started learning DNA results) So long story short, I recently found her on my father's side of the family, It has been confirmed that the decedents were like rabbits and a lot of intermarriage and so forth. So any help would be greatly appreciated!

The total of 2224 cM is higher than expected for half-siblings and aunts, and consistent with full siblings, but you would expect some fully overlapping regions for full siblings. Are there only half-overlapping regions? I am not sure what the colour coding means.

I don't really understand what your asking. I thought perhaps I ran my own DNA with each other on accident. So I redid it and came out the same results.

Your DNA has two strands, one from each parent. Siblings typically have some regions where they overlap each other on both strands; aunts do not because they are only related on one side.

I am not sure if Gedmatch uses a different colour for half-identical and full-identical, but that could be the key to answering your question.

Is there another site to run our DNA against each other?

Can you run a comparison of your X chromosome data?

AJL,
Green is full match, Yellow is half-identical, Red is no match.

For curiosity sake I ran my uncle's kit. According to GEDmatch our match is 1893 cM. I am also his second cousin once removed, besides more distant cousin relationships.

Dear Ann,
On GEDmatch you can run a one-to-one comparison of your X to another's kit. To test it I ran it versus my mom.

This is my results for the X chromosome data. So this means?

Largest segment = 195.0 cM
Total of segments > 7 cM = 195.0 cM Actual.

That looks like the entire length of the X chromosome, then. That means the most likely explanation is that you are half-sisters. You each received one X from your father. Since a male has only one X chromosome to give, all his daughters will have identical X chromosomes.
