Question: What does a 100% DNA mean?
Answer: This means that sometime back in time these families shared a common ancestor. We cannot know through DNA when this occurred, just that they do share a common ancestor.
 
Family Tree DNA charts their predictions based upon NO known shared paper trail or known relationship as follows:
Predications - 67 Markers tested
In comparing 67 markers, the probability that the person tested (A) and person tested (B) shared a common ancestor within the last…
4 Generations is 89.79%
8 Generations is 98.96%
12 Generations is 99.89%
16 Generations is 99.99%
20 Generations is 100%
Predications - 37 Markers tested
In comparing 37 markers, the probability that the person tested (A) and person tested (B) shared a common ancestor within the last…
4 Generations is 83.49%
8 Generations is 97.28%
12 Generations is 99.55%
16 Generations is 99.93%
20 Generations is 99.99%
24 Generations is 100%
 
The % can be increased using traditional research methods in combination with the DNA results.
 

What is a generation? We start counting generations with the parent generation. Therefore, the father of the person tested would be 1 generation ago, the paternal grandfather 2 generations ago, etc.
