I do not understand your point - you obviously don't understand genealogy. What "claim" are you rejecting? Charlemagne was King of the Franks about 1000 AD. He had 20+ children - so now everyone in the Western hemisphere is considered a descendant of Charlemagne. The gene for blue eyes actually was a mutation, before the mutation occurred everybody had brown eyes. But because a person needs two genes for blue eyes to express that trait, it was probably several generations down before a male, with one gene for blue eyes and one for brown eyes, and a female, with one gene for blue eyes and one for brown eyes also, produced offspring with blue eyes. So it is all people with blue eyes have probably have a common ancestor. If everybody alive today could trace their ancestry back 1000 years, there would definitely be serious overlapping of ancestors - there were not that enough people living then to for everybody alive today to not have had overlapping of ancestors. You can believe whatever you want but I have read about this subject (and no, I am NOT an authority on the subject) and educated myself somewhat about this subject. To take you seriously, you would need to make sense and your opinions do not concur with scientific data about genealogy, which is ultimately about our species. Your random opinions do nothing to prove a point you are trying to make.

I think your wording is not correct. You are not related to Queen Elizabeth II. You share a common ancestor. That is not the same.

The children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of Queen Elizabeth II are related to her but share a common ancestor with you. I hope this has made the difference clear.

According to this definition:
http://www.audioenglish.org/dictionary/related.htm
"indirect" or "collateral" related
(but that's related too )

Another aspect to take into consideration also along the lines that many people of the Western hemisphere could trace their ancestry back to Charlemagne and/or other members of the aristocracy and royal families of England can be attributed to events such as times of famine and pandemics of the black death in 1348-1350 and the great plague of 1665-1666. These events culled the population severely and it stands to reason that it would be that the higher classes of wealth and status that had the resources to remain healthier with a better diet and able to isolate themselves from the masses if needed, would have a better chance of surviving and producing offspring. The black death and the great plague were the two major pandemics but there were also other outbreaks. From the Museum of London:

"A major outbreak of the disease struck roughly every 20-30 years, killing around 20% of London’s population each time. There were lesser outbreaks in-between the major ones and sometimes the disease could continue for several years in a less serious form."

Your terminology is messed up. As cousins he is indeed related (If good lineage is correct). He is not directly related, and that is the difference.

Teutonic Knights - Fraud

Scam website:
Teutonic Order - Deutscher Orden - German Order - 1190

This fraudulent Imperial Teutonic Order is not a representative of the Teutonic Order based in Vienna, Austria, and Bad Mergentheim, Germany.

The legitimate sites:
Deutscher Orden: Brüder und Schwestern vom Deutschen Haus St. Mariens in Jerusalem - Welcome to the website of the Teutonic Order
Deutscher Orden - Deutsche Brüderprovinz

Head of the Teutonic Knights, Vienna, Austria
Deutscher Orden: Brüder und Schwestern vom Deutschen Haus St. Mariens in Jerusalem - Hochmeisteramt

At your conception, she passed on to you ONLY those genes that she had inherited from her father. So at that point you actually have none of your grandmother's DNA. So a person can be descended or related to a person and the both of you actually do not have any genes/DNA in common. This is an oversimplified version, but it is entirely possible.
Absolutely not. Please, think about it for a second. People in most parts of Africa haven't had sexual contact with people of another background since we left Africa. This goes for most other places too, someone in South East Asia, for example, might be related to a European person 30.000 years ago, which is far, far, far more distant than a 14th cousin.

I am fully aware of all of this. First of all, 10.000 years isn't even close to 14 generations, and it's still around the European region. But we don't have to argue forever about this.

You are right, maybe to add a little perspective for people who don't interest themselves in genealogy and stuff: in my family tree, 14 generations bring me back to about the mid to late 16th century (and in my case, several of them living in the same area where i was born, give or take ca. 50 km)

Exactly :) How far back have you been able to trace your family? Have you found ancestors outside of the Netherlands, if so, where and when?

I find this conversation and the information on genetics fascinating to read.

Of course, being adopted, my family tree begins with me and if someone shakes it and nuts fall out, its all my doing. If I had the money to spare though, I'd love to have my DNA tested just because I can.

Not arguing - just information that may be helpful to you to understand - you must have missed this link and thought I would bring it to your attention :)

Ancestry.com offers this service. Its not expensive either. You might research the accuracies of the results 1st though.

I pretty much live in the perpetual state of not having a down payment on a free lunch these days. There'd be no way to research the accuracy of the results as I really have absolutely nothing to go by. I just sounds like something interesting to do and know.

I know a lot of genetics and these companies, and I just need to tell you that you need to learn how to interpret the results you get. AncestryDNA and 23andme (the biggest companies) give you basically the same results, but they label it under different populations, so it looks different. For example, if you're from the Balkans, AncestryDNA says you're a mix of South Europeans and East Europeans (which is true), while 23andme simply gives you a reference group which is called the Balkans. That means that the Balkans group is constructed by both E Euro and S Euro. I'm in a hurry and this sounds very messy, but my point is, that you can't just accept the results you get as absolute truth, you need to some calculations in order to pin point your ancestry.

Thank you so much for your explanation. Its all so very interesting especially when you get into royal families that have lineages going back centuries and centuries.

That's the same thing. They are related to one another, just extremely, extremely, extremely distantly.

Maybe the best test to find out if you are related to someone or just have a common ancestor would be the test of asking "family" for a loan of a dollar. If they know you and like you and give you the dollar, you're related. If they wonder who the heck you are and back off scowling, you have a common ancestor somewhere.


(ducks and runs for cover)
