Hey Sherry! Sorry for the late post. Let me do some more investigating and I'll try to find out more about those acronyms (FBI, AB/PC. etc.). Also, as I understand it,the +09's are the closest match and as you get to the +10,+11 and so on, the less of a match they are.
I'll check into it - in the example I saw Thomas Krahn do, he compared the person's top ten numbers, and the difference between the top 3 was pretty big. For example, the person's number 1 match was 2 times more likely to be a corect match than the number 2 match.
(i.e. 1)India 2)Portuguese 3)Chinese - it was 2 times more likely that the person had ancesters from India than Portugal.)
I will try to get the calculation and post it. I haven't tried to do the calculation myself, but perhaps I might be a good idea to give it a shot.:0)
