Is there a way, other than the match sending their results, to find out what location and value is different between two people at a distance of 1? If I knew this, there is a possibility of seeing...

I do see the list of novel variants. I share 106 with a known 5th cousin and 101 with a 'known' (but not all the generations by name) 10th cousin. Then it drops to shared in the 50s. These all...
