The sole reason the people whose GEDmatch numbers match our Federally enrolled Shawnee cousins to whom they were compared is by way of their direct-line descent from the family member(s) described below (two Shawnego cousins’ grandparents are listed on the rolls and are in the application process).

The GEDmatch Matching Segment Search comparison tool was run at 3.0 cM with no hard breaks. I felt this was appropriate because the relationships have been vetted through individual family tree comparisons and by individual GEDmatch One-to-One comparisons (I required matches of 7.0 cM or higher for multiple individuals for each family line being compared); therefore, I ran the following comparisons at the threshold of 3.0 cM in order to perform more detailed chromosome mapping. Any characterization of so-called “noise” would not apply here. Also, please note the chromosomes’ lining up with little or slight overlap. I also believe it is important to point out innumerable instances of the same individual’s matching at two or multiple places on the same chromosome as the subject being compared, increasing the total centimorgan match total for that individual on that particular chromosome. Also of interest are the identical starting or stopping point positions on a chromosome and/or identical starting and stopping points on a chromosome for individuals being compared.
