    He’s being processed... soon, very soon, especially compared to 1977.

    His status says research in progress, so it sounds like he is in the hands of the search volunteers looking for familial matches. Where do you find out his matches? Every once in a while on other threads, people post a PDF or spreadsheet (I think) of all the cases and their percentages, but I can never find it on their website, so I don't know where folks are getting it.

    Thanks, Cubby.
    If I'm reading it correctly, Delafield has a lot of potential for identification.

    His top match is 62.9 cM, which isn't great. He's got 5 matches over 40 cM. Again, not great, but could be worse. I think it's going to take some time but they could get a lucky break. They've solved a couple of cases with top matches around that number of cM.

    I think I read the DNA Doe also uses Family Tree DNA (FTDNA) but doesn't put out a spreadsheet for those results; hopefully they have better matches in that dbase.

    I can speak for myself and say that I personally had higher matches in FTDNA.

    I noticed that.
    I also noticed many of the other caucasian UIDs have very similar admixtures: Around half/less than half North Atlantic, less Baltic, even less West Med, then a bit of West Asian and this and that.
    Delafield has much more red.

    How does admixture help in the identification process?

    On another note, I have followed this case for so long I feel like this guy is family.

    Western Europe, so I think it's the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands and maybe Denmark?

    Someone else has said that Germany would be labeled North-Central Europe so North Atlantic might just be British Isles, Normandy, and Ireland.

    Not sure, I was thinking it might help when organising the matches into a tree, as on gedmatch you can see their charts too. So if one match is missing one bit of your chart and another match has lots of same bit, one would be from the father's side and the other from the mother's.
    Or it could be after staring at enough of these charts you can see just by looking where they were born and grew up and can focus on matches in the same area.
    Either way, must be an important tool since they are using it!
    Delafield has more North Atlantic (Western Europe) than the average caucasian from the US.
