This is my first post and I am not an expert, so please excuse my gaps in knowledge, but I would like some help. I am posting the areas of discrepancy between autosomal DNA results in matches from My True Ancestry and GEDmatch. Please give me your thoughts. It may be due to the setting I used, but if so I would like to run them again. My GEDmatch number is in my profile.
Ancient DNA matches
For GEDmatch, I used the following settings:
[FONT=&quot]Minimum segment threshold size to be included in total = 100 SNPs[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Minimum segment cM to be included in total = 3.0 cM

1. Sigtuna 84005/ NJ2572514

Others do confirm matches, but the numbers aren't equal.
I don't think My True Ancestry is all that accurate, to be honest.
