Relatives Sharing a Segment on Chromosome 6

This is a group of relatives who share a segment of chromosome 6 from a common ancestor. These are from among the relatives who share this chromosome segment with Richard Dieterle (b. 1945). This segment is associated with Britain and Ireland, but with only a 60% confidence level. Grace Mitzel, who is at the top of the list, and I share a common set of ancestors: Benjamin Moore, Sr. (ca. 1750-1827) and his wife Mildred Witt (1751-1826). This can be viewed on the chart Descendants of John Moore, where her recent ancestor, William Carl Underwood (b. 1906), can be seen towards the lower left of the chart. However, Gracie and I also have a common relative for a segment from chromosome 1. We cannot determine from which ancestors the 6 Chr. segment came without knowing where the 1 Chr. originated, or finding another common ancestor from among the other relations who have this 6 Chr. segment (or the 1 Chr. segment). We also cannot be certain that it did not come from an earlier shared ancestor. However, 23&Me predicts that we share a 3G grandparent, and the couple identified are to me 4G grandparents, so they remain likely candidates for either the 1 or the 6 Chr. segment match.

The two numbers at the ends of the vertical bars indicate the start and end positions that define the limits of the segment minus its most extreme exemplars. Two people begin at the initial position of 46434923 on this chromosome (Stacy Lawson and Matt Kruszewski). Michael Burleson's segment ends on chromosome position 92895664, and Gracie Mitzel's ends nearby at 92834121.
