Interpreting a Similarity Matrix

Overview

We have relatively little information about this group of three kits, beyond the limited linage data provided by the kit owners, and the YDNA similarity matrix showing their genetic relationships. They show reasonably close similarity (a maximum of 8.9% dissimilarity, indicating that they share a relatively recent common ancestor. Ancestry Public Member Trees provides a few lineages that COULD correspond to some of these individuals, but we lack enough kit specific lineage data to be comfortable with making a match for two out of the three kits.

Similarity

Index

Data provided by the Kit Owners is publicaly available through the FTNDA website. These data have been supplemented with information obtained for similar people given in various Public Member Trees on Ancestry. These additional data are presented speculatively. Additional information from the kt owners would help better "localize" these lineages, and improve the potential for finding a common ancestor.
