    Likely dna match

    I have a match of only 16cMs with someone whose tree overlaps mine so we share my 4 x great grandparents and his 6 x great grandparents. My sister shares this match too so how likely is it to be a genuine match or is it possible it is just a dna glitch. The reason I ask is that I am now not sure that...

    Thanks for the reply. I won't bother with another test in that case. We all tested with Ancestry and I have put both mine and my sisters raw dna onto Gedmatch and My Heritage but have not yet identified any matches other than those on Ancestry with the same kit name.

    How are we related?

    My sister and I have recently (independently) has our DNA tested and have both had the same match 1 - 2nd cousins with someone. Mine was 577 cMs and my sister was 608 cMs. I have managed to find out that the other person's grandfather, my generation, was a neighbour that we knew very well but did...
