I have too have tested a lot of family members. (I'd like to test more, but some people won't cooperate with me.) I see children have matches that neither of their parents have like you discuss in your video. Please clarify… Are these ALWAYS a false positive for the child? Couldn't some of these be a false negative for a parent ( the match should be showing for the parent but isn't)? You have an example of a low match to you daughter and there was a shared ancestors hint yet your daughter's match did not match you or her mother. Have you conclusively determined this is a false positive to your daughter? If yes, doesn't that mean your family tree or the match's family tree is wrong? If both trees are right, then your daughter and the match must be positive matches, correct?
