    How many matches do you have?

    Hey all


    I'm testing my dna for the 3rd time, this time with 23andme. I was wondering, how many matches do you have? What should I expect?

    The number of matches for my brother and myself has fluctuated a lot in the last year or so. Currently, I have 1354 matches whilst my brother has 1234.

    The number of matches depends a lot on your ancestry - people with British/Irish and Colonial American ancestry will have a larger amount of matches, as will those with Ashkenazi ancestry, whilst people with ancestry less common on 23andMe (for example, Eastern Europeans, Africans, Asians etc) are likely to have a smaller number of matches.

    Although I'm over 25% Jewish, I'm also heavily Slavic and Southern Italian, so I probably wont have a ton of matches. I have 4000 at Ancestry. Does 23andme have a large Jewish database?

    I am likely a bad example given my (bourgeoisie) ancestry. Yes, I'm British, not a Martian, but then an American friend almost has fits about my "isolation factor" and lack of relatives on most of these sites.

    524 matches, about 3/4ths of which falls into the "distant" category.

    My sibling on 23&me gets a whopping 451 matches.

    I have 1295; my father has 1312. I could look up the numbers for the other 8 folks in my group, but I think they'd mostly be comparable. The closest relative beyond my immediate family is a 2nd cousin.

    At Ancestry, I have close to 250 pages of matches. There my closest relatives -- not counting my daughter -- are two 1st cousins once removed. They're 2nd cousins to each other, and to my daughter. I also have a 2nd cousin at Ancestry.

    The funny thing is, it turns out that the 2nd cousin at 23andMe and the 2nd cousin at Ancestry are 1st cousins to each other.
    Besides British-German-Catalan, ancestry includes smaller amounts of French, Irish, Swiss, Choctaw & another NA tribe, possibly Catawba. Avatar picture is: my father, his father, & his father's father; baby is my eldest brother.

    I have 1373 and my mom has 1424 and my dad has 1370, which oddly seems larger than many above got, considering I've mostly Latvian ancestry! Of course most of my matches are very small and I think I top out at 0.41% (I think my mom hits 0.5%) and by my third page I already hit under 0.2% matches and I have tons around 0.08%.

    I don't know if that one distant Barclay (Scottish/English eventually, not sure how far back they arrived in Latvia, certainly by lateish 1700s and maybe some bit earlier) ancestor is somehow doing it or maybe the bit of Baltic German and likely the one Dutch and those are just enough to boost it all up? And my dad probably, somehow has some bit of Germany or Western European.
