Hello Family!

 

   We hope all is well.  We are hearing about some amazing discoveries.  We have connected a Temne of Sierra Leone with some of his families in the America Diaspora.   We have connected Bamoun Cousins from Cameroon with their Bakongo cousins from Congo!  CONGRATS to everyone ! 

 

Great News!  We are testing more African kits in Sierra Leone and Ghana.  Please check Genesis for new matches.  We just added Temne and another Igbo kits.

 

All kits in our project are managed by Imperial African History and Genetic Genealogical Society, also known as DNA Tested Africans.  The email is AfricanRoyale@DNATestedAfricans.org .

 

African Royale DNA testers in our project are as follows:

  • African Bloodline Royals and their extended families

  • African Titled Royals and their extended families

  • African Village Chiefs and their extended families

  • African Clan Leaders and their extended families

Clarification Regarding Genesis.Gedmatch.com Match Confirmation 

  • Note 1: PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT WE CANNOT CONFIRM THE DNA MATCH FOR YOU OR EXPLAIN HOW YOU ARE RELATED.  There is no guarantee of a confirmed DNA match/ confirmed relative, even if the person appears on your match list.  If you have questions about Gedmatch or Genesis, contact Support@Gedmatch.com or Gedmatch@Gmail.com .  We do not own or manage that website. 

 

  • Note 2: The Genesis.Gedmatch.coom website is STILL in Beta testing. I wanted clarification on the best method to understand the comparisons.  I communicated with Aaron Wells of Genesis through the Gedmatch User Group on Facebook.  I presented the following question. 

 

Longer Version Instructions 

 

  • Step 1.  Register at this link https://genesis.gedmatch.com/ if you have not done so. If you register and get a notice that the email you are using already exists, simply log into the link with your Gedmatch.com log in credentials. (Please read the website first before making a decision to upload your DNA Raw data)

 

  • Step 2.  Upload your DNA Raw Data. It may take a day or 2 for your matches to populate.

  • Step 3.  If any African Royal appears on your match list, you MUST conduct the one to one comparison. The CMs must be at least 7 and the SNPs must be at least 200 - 400 SNPs or higher, in order to send us an email about the match.   

  • Step 4. Click on your Genesis kit #. You will see a list of matches. You are almost there!  

 

  •  Step 5.  If you see any of this email on your list, AfricanRoyale@DNATestedAfricans.org  , click on the letter “A” In that column . This will allow you to conduct the required one to one comparison.

 

 

 

The one to one comparison will show the chromosomes that you match on .

  •  

 

The above image shows 4 rows of matching for Chromosome 1.  The Centimorgans (CMs) on 1 row  may show at least 7 CMS and the SNPs of 200-400 or higher.  

 

The image below shows on row 1 that this match has 47.2 CMs and 6,993 SNPs.  That means they are a legitimate match.  

 

 

 

 

  • Step 6.  If the above requirements are met, save your one to one comparison .Jpeg image or PDF file to your computer.  

 

  • Step 7.  Again, We will then provide you with contact Info for your DNA match if they provided it to us.  WE CANNOT CONFIRM THE DNA MATCH FOR YOU OR EXPLAIN HOW YOU ARE RELATED.  There is no guarantee of a confirmed DNA match, even if the person appears on your match list.  If you have questions about Gedmatch or Genesis, contact Support@Gedmatch.com or Gedmatch@Gmail.com .  We do not own or manage that website. 

 

 

More Clarification Regarding Genesis.Gedmatch.com Match Confirmation 

 

 

Aaron  responded with the following:

"The basic answer is yes. But be aware that 8 cm suggests a distant cousin, and you may want to have a specific reason, such as an interest in a specific segment, before corresponding with the match."  

 

Curtis of Gedmatch stated the following 

 

"The simple answer is that no "match" should be confirmed until a paper trail has been found.  Your example {of 8 CMS} has little better than a 50/50 chance of being real. Even if it is real rather than a statistical coincidence,  the the relationship could be beyond paper trail distance."
