NPE - Great Grandfather Paternal line
Hi, I have 5 kits, two belonging to my Paternal Aunt and her son. I completed the Leeds Method based on myself and realised that I have only one match to my expected Great Grandparent and it turns out all the shared matches with this person are on the maternal line. So no DNA from expected Great Grandfather (this occurs on all kits).
We all have a match that’s relatively high and lots of shared matches with that person. My Aunties match with this person let’s call him Robert, at 186cm. I completed a tree for the mystery DNA some time ago and have been able to place them and their marched into the tree, linking them together. We still do not fit. We have both Roberts maternal and paternal lines as matches. Mainly maternal but some paternal too - one going back to fourth great grand uncle.
My Aunt is the closest to this line so I’ve used her as my example. I have drawn the conclusion that my GGP must be descended from Robert’s parents as we have both sets of DNA and that would make one of Roberts brothers the actual GGP, except from all I’ve found, they would be too young but biologically possible.
Im looking for answers so if you think my conclusions are completely wrong please let me know, I want the truth and if that means starting again I’m happy with that. If you need more info please ask and any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading!
