Common Threads that Bind
Recently with DNA testing and a match on 23andme, I discovered a new relative and her name is LCP for confidential reasons. Our numbers match on the 20th chromosome and we share 0.17% our DNA. 5th cousin predicted relationship. We both share Sub-Saharan African ancestry at 84.4% for me and LCP shares Sub-Saharan African ancestry at 81.5%, European ancestry for me 14.2% and LCP 17.1%. Maternal haplogroup for me L2a1a2 and for LCP L2c. After comparing notes and surnames I discovered we do have relatives in common. This discover opens up a new group of relatives I never knew existed before now. We both can trace ancestors back to the 1600 century and I am hoping to a specific location within modern Nigeria.
