A Neat Genealogy DNA Story: Distant Cousins Meet at Jamboree

I missed meeting Dave Dowell (the Dr. D. Digs Up Ancestors blog), but I met CeCe Moore (the Your Genetic Genealogist blog) briefly, at the SCGS Genealogy Jamboree last weekend.

It turns out that Dave and CeCe are distant cousins through a mitochondrial DNA exact match.  See the picture of the two and the details of the DNA match in Dave's post, Dr D finally meets Your Genetic Genealogist

Amazing!  Mitochondrial matches do occur, but to have two geneabloggers match (well, Dave's first cousin and CeCe) must be a relative rarity.

Funny, they don't look like cousins, do they?  But then I don't look like some of mine either!
