    Confused!

    At the risk of sounding like a complete moron.. can someone please give me an explanation for this! It is driving me mad.

    So, whenever I have done a match and it comes back with no DNA shared on the 7cm calculator (one to one compare).. I then do the people who match 1 or both kits and ALWAYS get a list of people who match us both.

    So, I was a bit skeptical of that and decided to use the search facility to find random gedmatch kits around the world... so I picked one in Japan, totally random..

    .. and then it gave us a list of people we commonly match.

    Is that the case with every single kit you test against? Never once has a kit done with that 'people who match 1 or both kits' ever said there are no matches.

    So.. can anyone shed any light on this please?

    DELETED because in my original response, I think I had one of those "moron moments" of my own. At least such moments mean we aren't dead.

    EDIT:

    If I can think of a better answer (i.e., any real answer at all), I'll post again.

    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.
