  • How far is recent ancestor for 12 marker exact match

    If i have an exact 12 marker match with someone, how far the common ancestor would be?

    https://www.familytreedna.com/faq-markers.aspx

    According to the above site, it means that there is a 95% probability that the ancestor is no longer than 29 generations and by 29 generation i guess they mean 1000 to 1500 years. Is this assessment correct or not​​​​​​​

    Look immediately beneath your match's name and click on the orange "TiP" icon.
