Hi everybody,

I'm Turkish descent and I have 3th to 6th cousins, and 3th cousins to distant cousins.

Some of these cousins are in Denmark and Poland. I'm 100% I don't have recent ancestry from there.

What does this 3th to 6th cousins, and 3th cousins to distant cousins mean?

I have these cousins:

Closests:
0.22% shared, 2 segments

0.18% shared, 2 segments

But most are:
0.18% shared, 1 segment

and less (I have 121 DNA relatives on 23andme)

It's normal to have these matches without having any (recent) foreign admix. All Turks (and other West Asian) have them.

Ejder:

Welcome to the forums, and it's always nice to have an H11a cousin.

There are a fair number of Turks as well as Bosnians in Denmark, and many Tatars in Poland. I'm not sure that would completely explain your matches, but perhaps it could in part?
