I started using GEDmatch in 2021 because I was trying to build a family tree and we didn’t know who my great-great-grandfather was. My maternal great-grandfather arrived in Bosnia in 1895, but I didn’t know his parents or from where he arrived. The possibility of an exact 1:1 comparison of the genome made GEDmatch seem like a potential solution to my family mystery.
I found out that it is very likely that I also have a family in Belarus! I could finally compare the results from other sites on Gedmatch to give a completely different picture of the family, and build my family tree.
