I recently discovered I shared a DNA match with a lady of 341cMs of whom I don’t know. I’ve since made contact with her and some missing gaps discovered. She has a half sibling (1972cm) - brother , (Same mother ) but this person shows up as a 48cM match to me. - very distant. Can there be any explanation ? I’ve established it’s my paternal grand mother side it’s all linked too. The lady that’s the match is in her 60s , my g- mother is deceased - 92 years. I’m confused as ages differ here - what link could it be ?

    There are many possible relationships for your match to this lady . Far fewer between her and her half brother and a very large number between you and her half brother. I think you should expand your question to list relationships you've considered and already excluded to see what may remain. – PolyGeo Mar 15 at 22:01

    Is there a reason you can't solve this with a paper trail? Since you don't match her half brother nearly as well, you are probably related on her father's line. The brother is probably matching for some other reason. – Bill Mar 21 at 3:50
  • The lady was adopted out at birth since learnt her birth parents are. They share the same mother , lady’s father is the half brothers Grandfather. The brothers father is the grandfathers son. Generation skip here . How does it explain a 341cM lady to me and a 45 cM from half brother to me ? – Cam Apr 4 at 14:27
