  • New Cousin Mystery

    I have two "Mystery Cousins"

    On another service my number one match is at a THIRD cousin level to someone who on a paper trail tree is actually a fifth or sixth degree cousin. His daughter shows up as a very distant cousin.

    I imagine there must be someone closer that's not on his paper trail tree which isn't as detailed as mine.

    This "other service" is not very transparent - not showing details like shown here or in the off again on again GEDMatch.
    The other mystery cousin has a major brick wall in one branch of her family and I also match her cousins from the brick wall branch of her family. She and I are at about 4th/5th cousin level.

    If these two mystery cousins had their DNA data transfered here would FTDNA be able to help us figure out our respective common ancestors?
