    YFull STR match distances

    Hello.
    I don't know if this belongs here, I haven't found a YFull thread.
    Can someone help me understand the STR - match distances on YFull ( Y dna )?
    I have the following matches, the closest one shows a distance of 0.026. How would that translate into years (Closest common ancestor) or generations?
    Thank you

    ^ I have a 0.031 match at Yfull I've tried using the formula in the link ,i.e 0.031x 67/111 =GD, but I'm getting nonsensical results. Could someone please do it for me?

    0.031 * 67 = 2.1

    0.031 * 111 = 3.4

    You match would be up to 3/67 and up to 4/111
    Most of my family is from Tennessee, though a few of my ancestors are from adjacent areas of North Carolina and Georgia. My paternal line is positive for Z30682, underneath J-Z7671 and Y11200.
