    Iím going to show my ignorance, here. Do you mean shared DNA of x number of cm across x number of segments?

    Number of matches(people) you share with another person . For me it's now 683. A massive pile up I would think.

    Per segment? I mean, I tested my parents, I share more than a thousand matches with my dad

    I have several pile up segments, but the segment with the most IBD matches would be somewhere around 150. I do share more matches with these persons, mostly 200-250, sometimes 300-400, but not all on the same segment, so I don't keep track of it.

    Kae = Father // Ella = Mother // Pao = Maternal Grandmother:
    _____________________________________________

    Kae: 66.8 Dutch // 25.8 N+W French // 7.4 E German (@0.01632655)
    Ella: 92.9 Belgian // 4.0 W German // 3.1 W Sicilian (@0.01514940)
    Pao: 58.2 Belgian // 41.8 W German (@0.01636705)

    Wow, that's huge. I don't know how to sort by these, but my highest that I've noticed (excluding immediate relatives) is in the 100s, less than 200.

    Granted, my relatives (after my parents and sister, who I added) drop to two second cousins once removed (1.2% and 1.1% shared). One of my issues on MH is a lack of close relatives vs., say, Ancestry.

    Aren't such large numbers of shared ancestors a strong indicator of a pile up/IBS situation ?

    That prompts me to ask a perhaps unanswerable question . Above how many shared matches would it begin to indicate a match is due to IBS/a pile up ?
