Proposed Cousins MASTER List – These Cousin Relationships Are Probable But Remain To Be Verified & The Links Are Unknown

As more have their DNA analyzed there are more cousins being proposed by various organizations. I am currently using 23andMe, GEDmatch and ftDNA. As well, I am using MyHeritage for family tree (GEDCOM) development. there are others but these are the primary ones. I will update the list from time to time.

I have decided to put up this master list of the most promising names in order to attract others who are searching and may have parts of the puzzle that we don’t have. Note that searches of specific family trees–such as the current most promising family tree managed by 4th cousin Daniela Mihailovici–will get their own postings.

For Frank’s descendants coming to this page, remember that these matches–out of necessity–are to me and to Merle, Kevin and Brian since it is my DNA that was used. This means that all Frank’ and Molly’s descendants may be related but that since half my DNA is from my English mother then other descendants of Frank and Molly may NOT be related to these cousins. If one other of my cousins (Frank’s descendents) were to have their DNA tested then we could cross compare and determine if the DNA that matches each of these proposed cousins comes from Frank or Molly. That would reduce the search time required by weeding out those who are not related to Frank. I’m unaware of any other of Frank’s descendants having their DNA tested other than me, Brian, David and Jon.

All of the names posted are unproven, unless otherwise indicated. They will be added to our GEDCOM and will be appropriately “qualified”.

NOTE: If anyone named above would prefer to be removed from the list, please let me know. The information posted above is available from other web sites that require members to opt in so that they can benefit from matching DNA analysis and family trees/GEDCOMs. Nonetheless, I wish to establish friendly relations with newly found relatives. We can agree to disagree later, once we really get to know each other!

This addition originated from my son, David, who opened up this DNA Pandora’s box. He pointed out to me the relative importance of propriety and enthusiasm. He deserves the credit as well as his mother who must have brought him up well.
