    Question Dueling Banjos: Are Your Parents Related?

    Have you run Gedmatch's "Are your parents related?" tool?

    Here are my results (no banjos playing in the background):

    Largest segment = 0.0 cM
    Total of segments > 7 cM = 0.0 cM
    No shared DNA segments found
    No indication that your parents are related.

    Comparison took 0.46597 seconds.

    Not sure if this feature is working, or if it only is checking if your parents are closely related. Not only are my parents distantly related to each other, but all four of my grandparents are distantly related to each other. In addition, all eight of my great-grandparents are distantly (and not so distantly) related to each other. Despite this level of endogamy I received the following:

    Largest segment = 0.0 cM
    Total of segments > 7 cM = 0.0 cM
    No shared DNA segments found
    No indication that your parents are related.

    Comparison took 0.48359 seconds.

    Well that's something I never knew. My parents are from the same town in Kerala so it's not that surprising.

    It appears to be looking for segments larger than 7 cM, which is what I am inferring from the line that says, "Total of segments > 7 cM = 0.0 cM".

    My Dad's kinfolk are from Jackson County, Kentucky. He has some family here in Pulaski on his maternal side and they actually do connect back to a single line on my mothers side. My Dads maternal side is where I get most of my German ancestry and these groups tended to travel together. The single line I'm talking about from my mothers line were swiss-german and they intermarried with my dads Jungs, Bachs and Kleins.

    My youngest brother's wife had the maiden name Jung, but she is an actual native German, born and raised in Frankfurt.

    My own mums family lived in what was a tiny fishing community from at least the end of the Medieval period until the 1930s and didnt marry outside this community until about then so it is surprising they dont have web feet and two heads. Apparently the fishing families marriage practice was that it was not OK to marry anyone even if they lived 50 feet away if they were not daughters of other fishermen but it was OK to marry another fisherman's daughter in another port your boat sometimes called into even if it was 50 miles along the coast. I know that the former fishing and landlubber areas even retained a kind of gang-like tribal dislike for each other even when I was a kid despite the fact the fishing had died in the 1930s.

    I don't think my parents were related but just a few days ago I discovered that my half-sister's mother and our father were half-tenth cousins, being both descended from the Pilgrim Stephen Hopkins from the Mayflower. Of course, the first thing out of my sister's mother's mouth upon learning this was "that explains a few things."

    The good thing about it is this...she's my dear friend and I've always been uncomfortable calling her my ex-stepmother after our late father divorced her (she was wife #2). Now I can call her my cousin. (cue the banjos)
