I was adopted at birth and know very little identifying information about my birth parents.
I recently took a DNA test on Ancestry.com and found a match that was a possible 1st/2nd cousin match.
After much research, I was able to get in touch with this individual. After explaining the circumstances of my birth, he feels with all of his heart that he is my half-brother.
Currently, neither of us have any immediate relatives who've taken DNA tests.
According to Ancestry.com, we share 611 Centimorgans across 38 DNA segments. I don't think we're brothers because from all I can tell, there's just not enough shared DNA.
He's going to gedmatch today and upload his information. I would like to know. All the circumstances and timing makes sense that he would be my half-brother, but the DNA is saying different.
Anyone have any ideas?
I've read that have sibling can have some weird shared DNA.
