Family Group 20
Jeffrey P Osborne and Felipe Osborne Shea
Originally, based on the 12-marker test, both Jeffrey and Felipe were placed in Family Group 1. Both match perfectly to each other on the 12-marker test, but were a GD of 1 from everyone else in FG1. Normally a GD of 1 indicates a probable common ancestor. However Felipe’s 25-marker test results show that he is definitely NOT related to anyone in FG1 or to anyone else in the project. Jeffrey has not had the 25-marker test so we can’t say for sure that he is not related to anyone in FG1, but based on the perfect match with Felipe, he is being located in the new FG20 with Felipe for now.
This situation where there is an apparent relationship in the 12-marker test but definitely not related on higher order tests is the first time this has occurred in our project. However, FTDNA says it has happened in other projects and is not that unusual. It illustrates the value of getting higher order tests.
We have been unable to get any
information on Jeffrey’s ancestors, except that he stated that he knows them
