Charles, another thing to keep in mind is this. If, as was stated in a previous response, a perfect 67/67 match implies a 99% chance (99 out of 100) of a common ancestor within 10 generations, that means that the flip side is true as well. That is, ONE time out of a hundred, two 67/67 samples will NOT share a common ancestor within 10 generations -- and it could be several more generations further back.
If you happen to hit the REVERSE jackpot -- where the two you are eyeballing are the 1% EXCEPTION to the rule then ....
See what I mean? --Carl
