I believe I have finally found my biological father. I was recently contacted by a possible cousin.

Amount of Shared DNA in Ancestry is 548 centimorgans shared across 31 DNA segments.

In GEDMATCH the Largest segment = 75.3 cM Total of segments > 7 cM = 625.0 cM 25 matching segments

Estimated number of generations to MRCA = 2.3

Is this a good chance that I have found my long lost family?
