    Hmm..thanks for letting me know that, I thought I had read it meant a possible relationship, so I shouldnt be considering a relation at all between us? Back to square one then. Still waiting on the last set of markers from the lab. Ill be ordering the upgrades for sure.

    According to FTDNA, at 25 markers a distance of 7 or more means totally unrelated:

    Genetic Distance of 9 How likely we are related?

    My husband found a match on Ysearch and the person has the same surname and they are a genetic distance of 9. Their last known ancestor is from the same area as his last known ancestor, we are still waiting on the final markers to come back for the 37 markers, right now they are a match on 16 out of 25 markers for a genetic difference of 9. So how likely at this point are they related and about how far back should we be looking? Any thoughts?
Working...
