Bobbitt Family DNA Project How To Read Results

 

I found this link on the Internet that explains how to read DNA results.  Click here to read it.

Here is some of the information from the above link.

"When you compare a 12 Marker result to another 12 marker result of someone
with the SAME SURNAME, and the results match 12/12, there is a 99%
probability that you are related. If you compare a 25 Marker result to
another 25 marker result for the SAME SURNAME, and the results match 25/25,
then there is 99.9% confidence that the two individuals are related.

"If you compare the 12 marker result to someone else who does NOT have the
same surname, but the scores match, you are most likely NOT related. When we
use the term related, we are talking about within the last 1000 years or 40
generations.


"If two 12 marker results match for two participants with the same surname,
and the genealogy research shows a common ancestor in 1835, the DNA test has
validated the research and proven that the two descendents are related. In
this example, you have two items of evidence to support that the individuals
tested are related. In addition, the research provided a precise time frame
for the common ancestor."
