Hello Cora,

Yes, I see the matching Bernard Ward and that is in fact a 12/12 marker fit. However you should consider extending your test level to 37 markers to see if the match to the Asbell/Ward connection holds up or perhaps you will be closer to the Ezekial Ward who is 35/37 with the Asbell testee.

12 markers is just not enough to be certain of a match whereas 37 marker test levels are usually much better indicators of true relatedness, (or not!).

For instance, the Asbell participant has four Ward exact 12 marker matches out of a total of 40 exact 12 marker matches.

But only the Ezekial Ward descendant has tested through the 25 and 37 marker level to remain as a relevant match.

Thus, the other three Wards who are of definite interest may or may not be found to be related when/if they extend their test levels.

I hope this is understandable for you, if not please feel free to come back with specific questions.
