Chromosome Clustering 5th Edition. I've created an Excel workbook to Chromosome Cluster matches from FTDNA, 23andMe, GedMatch, or other sources. Any data sources can be used provided a data header row exists as explained in the workbook. Gedmatch Segment or Triangulation data can be used. This workbook requires Excel 365 or later. It is not compatible with Excel 2016 or earlier. The 5k, 10k, and 20k versions should work in Google Sheets. Various sizes of the workbook are available. The difference is based on the number of data rows allowed. Calculations are faster with fewer data rows. Large data sets can take a long time to calculate. You can significantly reduce data rows by removing low cM data before pasting data into the workbook. The workbook is available from my DropBox at the links shown here. Open the link, then select Download on the 3 dots menu. 5,000 Data Rows. 10,000 Data Rows. 20,000 Data Rows. 40,000 Data Rows. Only if you can't prune your data to less than 20,000 rows. 60,000 Data Rows. Only if you can't prune your data to less than 40,000 rows. 80,000 Data Rows. Only if you can't prune your data to less than 60,000 rows. 100,000 Data Rows. Only if you can't prune your data to less than 80,000 rows. A cluster is a subset of data that are similar. In this method the similarity is common segments of DNA on a chromosome. The workbook clusters matches based on matching DNA segments of a user selected chromosome. The user can also select a minimum cM level for clusters.

Will every kit number show up on the "DNA Results" pages whether there is a match or not?

Each kit owner controls privacy settings for their kit. It the kit is not toggled to allow public display of results then the results for that kit are hidden to everyone except the kit owner.

I became kin through marriage to some in the Dubose family when they married into my King-Williams line but I had no idea their DNA would match mine. I am trying to figure out where I genetically match you all. I have several pics of Robert and Elizabeth Nancy King Dubose on FaceBook. I also have a family pic of Victoria and family and Deewitt King the son of Cullen and Victoria Dubose King. They are on our King - Williams Reunion site but if any of you want to see them you have to be invited by me or one of our 69 members after you friend any of our members. I do have a clue as to how I match you. On searching my project for matches to some of you, two of you are matching two different Magee (MacGregor) cousins so that may mean that my match isn't with your Dubose DNA but with your MacGregor DNA. I have this same problem with the Atheys who are Dubose descendants and the Stewarts who are also Dubose descendants.

You were added to my tree Thomas and it says we are kin through my G Grandma Matilda George and her 2nd husband Goodson or Goodrum Dubose but I am descended from her and her 3rd Husband William Marion Reddoch so I shouldn't be kin to Goodson.

How do I add info
Steven Coker
August 12, 2017 @ 11:00pm
You can add info in your kit. Click on MANAGE PERSONAL INFORMATION on your myFTDNA page. You can put whatever you want to share in the MY STORY text box. If you have a tree on Ancestry, then you can share a link to the tree.

You can share your lineage information using the MYFAMILY TREE in your kit. You can manually input parents, siblings, etc. Or, you can upload a gedcom.

FF is Family Finder but I'm not sure about FMAS. I'm sure we can figure it out.

FMS means Full Mitochondrial Sequence. That means the person has done the Full mtDNA test. FF means the person has done the Family Finder Test. HVR1 and HVR2 mean the person has done mtDNA testing, but not the Full (FMS) level of testing. For more explanation see

I have been looking at Family Finder. I have found connections with a few participants. I am wondering what looking at the matching segments does for me?

Hello! One match in FF, 5th cousin DuBose. Greetings from Finland, capital Helsinki! I have smiths from Wallonia in my "big" family, for example Hane. Does anybody know from DuBose´s, who moved to Sweden to ironworks in 16th?
