    From triangulating for years unrelated people on the X, I think I would characterize the whole X-chromosome as a pile-up. That is why I advise not to try and analyze relationships more than a few generations back with X-DNA analysis.

    I have had some very interesting results with triangulating males. Remember, males only have one X-chromosome, so if two males have a match, it is an exact match (no half matches to figure out).
