    But it might not be closer timewise. I have been working on a family group with good paper documentation. I see an example of 6th cousins being 2 steps different and 3rd cousins being 4 steps different. The 4 step person had a lot of old fathers in their line, whether that is related or not.

    The DNA sample from the deceased match should still be on file at FTDNA and available for additional tests. If, that would help.

Some of the values were less for me than they were for him, as I listed above...Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!!! Sorry for rambling..B
    The consensus is that mutations are random, generally distributed around the modal value. You don't know, in general, when comparing two haplotypes, who had the mutation? Wait till you get your final SNP, and then see if you can identify the modal for that clade/subclade. Then you may be able to see the order of the mutations. JMHO.
