    Number of GEDmatch members?

    The DNA testing companies trade on the size of their data base e.g. Ancestry 3m latest in another post end 2016, the others (from ISOGG) are 23&me 1.2m ftdna ~275k plus smaller companies .
    BUT how many people are in GEDmatch where you can compare with all the companies?
    Does anyone know?

    Out of 64 pre 1800 births 45% Cheshire, 1% Irish (or Scottish), 25% south Derbyshire, 13% Burton on Trent area (where 4 counties within 10 miles), 7% Shropshire, 1% Staffs, 8% Lancs. So far all British Isles despite what some testing companies say.

    You could email them and they may tell you

    Using the genomemate tool (allows you to upload all your 23andme, FTDNA, gedmatch, and ancestry.com matches into one database), I personally have a lot more gedmatch matches than I do from FTDNA and 23andme combined...even when I set the filter to 10, 15, or 20cM

    It would be interesting to see how many people are registered there. I find the site the most interesting of them all. Just found a possible paternal match @ 4.1 gd. First one on the paternal side to date.

    Gedmatch 20cM=2000 matches, 15cM=399 matches, 10cM=100 matches.
    Ancestry=196 matches.
    FTDNA =1421 matches.

    Actual confirmed matches=3, daughter, aunt and 1/2 brother.

    I am. Even having tested autosomally with 3 companies, I have found relevant distant matches that the testing companies may have not presented, due to restrictions in their matching methodology.
