    Ancestry DNA matches. How many do yoy have?

    Hi all


    I'm testing my dna again, this time through ancestry. How many matches should I expect? How many do you have?

    I have over 5000 with Ancestry. My mother, who is mainly descended from Colonial Americans, has over 7500. The matches go down to 6cM, but we both still have a great number of them at 7cM and above.

    I have a sh*tload of matches at Ancestry. Some of them are really cool. Most of them I cannot connect to my pedigree, but the cool ones make up for that.

    My guess is that not many Syrians have tested. My mom shows consistent Syrian or Anatolian, so that might bring down my matches a bit, but I'm also 25% Jewish, so we'll see. I can't wait to see what I come up with.

    There is one that connects me up to some 111-marker y-dna matches with my surname who are y-dna descendants of Benjamin Stevens Sr., born 1737 in Ellicott City, Maryland. It is further confirmation of my belonging to a family group in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, in the late 1700s that really narrows the search field for me on my y-dna line. Benjamin is not my ancestor, but he was probably the brother of my ancestor.

    I have many matches with Jewish ancestry among Ancestry matches
    also in FTDNA I have only 5 matches and 3 of them have Jewish ancestry ,even my closest match at FTDNA is a Syrian Jewish from Aleppo and he is Also among my closest matches at Ancestry

    May I ask you how many matches you (and Levantines on average) have at gedmatch?
    My closest oracles:
    1 CEU + Morocco_Jews + Swedish + Sahara_OCC @ 1.618438 DODECAD V3
    1 BedouinA + German_North + Scottish_West + Tunisian @ 1.355784 puntDNAL K12 Modern
    1 Algerian + BedouinA + British + Norwegian_West @ 2.072077 MDLP K23b

    I currently have 8865 matches (although a few people have multiple relatives submitted to the database), with the closest match sharing 55cM with me (my brother hasn't done the AncestryDNA test). Some of my mathces I already knew the connection to from other sites, whilst I've found two new connections via ADNA.
