I would be interested in hearing from other descendants of who have tested autosomal DNA at 23andme or FTDNA.

Finding the common ancestor with DNA matches at 23andme

Step One - Identify all the ancestors for yourself that you can.  (like Ancestors of Kristina Hewitt)  Consider listing them somewhere you can share.  Try to aim for at least all 32 of your great great great grandparents.  True 4th cousins will share a great great great grandparent.

Step Two - Contact all your matches.  It is impossible to tell which will be key matches that will reveal new information.  Chances are good that most of your matches are indeed cousins.  Invite everyone to share that is on your DNA relatives list.

Step Three - As each DNA relative accepts your invitation to share, compare their DNA to yours, using Advanced Family Inheritance under Ancestry Tools.

Step Four - Enter each match into a spreadsheet.  You could also use 529andYou if you use Chrome, in fact I recommend it highly, but I also use a spreadsheet so I can add custom notes.  You will need columns for the matches name, the chromosome that has a matching segment, the start of the segment, the end of the segment.  I also like to include the size of the segment match in cM.  You can also use DNAgedcom.com to download your matching segments for you.

Step Five - Identify all the ancestors for your match that you can.  This is time consuming.  Insanely time consuming.  Even if they give you the info for all 4 of their grandparents, you will need to find/verify their 8 great grandparents, 16 great great grandparents and 32 great great grandparents.  Thats 8+16+32=56 people.  And that is if they are actually true 4th cousins.  I've been experimenting with various methods to try to make this less time consuming.  I've been playing with Geni, WikiTree, and FamilySearch FamilyTree.  We really need a shared tree to start to make large steps forward in finding matches.

Step Six - Identify if there are any known common ancestors between you and your match.  This is perhaps the trickiest part.  It is possible that a common ancestor is not the source of the matching DNA segment.  It is very common to have many common ancestors with a person. The more people in who match each other in a segment and also have the same common ancestor, the more likely that that is the ancestor who is the sources of the matching segments.  Also, segments from closer relationships (4th cousins and closer) are more likely to be from the suspected common ancestor as there are less possibilities with equal probabilities.

Nelson Hiram Staats married Mahala Stewart on 5 Aug 1852 at Niagara, Ontario, Canada.

Mahala died 5 May 1877 and what happened to Nelson after that is not known, but his children are all living together, without him, in the 1881 Census of Canada. In fact Nelson could have died before Mahala, sometimes after registering the birth of Ellen Araminta Staats who was born 3 Dec 1874.

There is still much investigation to be done in this area of the family tree.

Peverelle Shamburg Hewitt was born 17 Jul 1926 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Peverelle Shamburg Hewitt was the son of Ernest Hewitt and Thelma Maude  Peverelle.

The death of a child is every mothers worst nightmare, but sadly, it was a common  event in generations past.

 Peverelle Shamburg Hewitt died 15 Feb 1928 in Toronto, from dyptheria.  He  was only 19 months old.

I can only image the grief of his mother, to lose her first child so young.

The death record states he was buried at St. James, but other sources report he  was actually buried at Union Cemetery in Port Hope, Ontario, Canada.  According to a family story, his mother planted a tree at his grave site.

DNA results can now be phased

This article explains that scientists have now figured out how to determine which segments come from your father and which come from your mother.

I predict within a year (by the end of 2014) we will see 23andMe and FTDNA and maybe Ancestry offering a DNA testing upgrade which offers phased results.  The matches would then be sortable by which side they are on, mother or father.

I would gladly pay for this service on some of the kits. Personally I would pay more, maybe as much as $500 per kit, but if they want to get many customers I suspect they will need to keep the price to $100 or lower for the upgrade.

The value of truly phased data to adoptees or people looking to solve complicated genealogical problems who can not test a close relative to the original tester is enormous.  I also believe this will move us a step closer to being able to recreate the DNA profiles of people not available for testing.

I believe Ancestry is apparently already phasing their date when calculating matches, but I think this is more "educated guessing" than actual phasing.

23andMe does add a "M" or "P" to your matches if you have tested a parent at 23andMe as well, but this is not actual phasing at all, it is only going by if the match matches your parent or not.The match on your and on your parent doesnt even have to be the same segment, so it can "lie".
