About this webinar

When you receive your results from any of the major testing sites you will see a relationship prediction such as 4th-6th cousin or 1st cousin twice removed-2nd cousin twice removed. What exactly do these predictions mean though? This presentation will explain all about these predictions and provide practical advice on how to interpret and make best use of them.

    Excellent session thanks Michelle. I liked the improvement ancestry did to adjust the relationship to the actual one. Would be good if MH did the same thing. I do the same notes on MH as Michelle. thanks for the info from LivingDNA. I have it but haven’t explored it too much, probably time I did.

    Excellent. Really interesting to learn about all the newer developments in Ancestry and MyHeritage. I’m gradually identifying my matches on the 5 main sites, but it’s taking time as my closest are ‘only’ 3rd cousins, the highest being just 76cM on Ancestry.
