No, I understand, and you're right about her being an ancestor of yours. You just didn't inherit any of her genetic code to a traceable degree. So we're both right. Let's say you're talking about your gg grandma, who is one of 16 gg-grandparents that you and your sister share. Well, yes, both of you can claim "Grandma NA" as your GG-Grandma, but your sister will have the genetic proof as well as the paper trail proof of the relation, whereas you will only have the paper trail proof. Do you see?? So we're both right. Well, I don't really consider it to be that I'm part right, but just from what I've learned thus far. Also, she may have inherited more of her phenotype as well as this is the reason why many full siblings don't look alike who come from the same parents. This is all so interesting. It's such a learning process, but a fun one!!
