    "Exact Match"

    Mari, OK, sorry if I missed something explained in an earleir thread but what do you mean by "exact match"? Do you mean a mtDNA FMS match? If that is the case then don't get too excited. I had one of those, and the common ancestor can still be as much as 16 generations back. That person and I then did the Family Finder test, and we didn't come up on each others list of "cousins" at all. I was disappointed.

    Family Finder will only pich up 50% of your 4th cousins, and 2% of your 5th cousins, so I guess that means that my FMS match and I could be as close as 4th or 5th cousins but it didn't get detected by FF.
