    Default How close of a cousin is this individual?

    Hi there, folks. On GEDmatch, I've come across a woman whose X-chromosome shares a lot of DNA with mine. After putting her results and mine through a one-on-one comparison, it says that we match 55.4 centimorgans and share 2,082 SNPs.

    Can anyone here tell me how close of cousins we probably are? I could normally guesstimate but just looking at Ancestry's estimates--they tell you how many centimorgans--but as I understand, the X has wonky recombination patterns. So, yeah, help would be appreciated.

    55 centiMorgans is quite high, but I'm not sure how that translates into relative (as in family) terms. You're probably very closely related, but obviously not close enough, because otherwise you'd know who it was.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries
