Matching Percentages ????

Hello All,

I've been noticing that %'s are being referenced to their DNA testing results.

How are the percentages arrived? Is it by number of markers tested?

If so, how many markers matched? For 100% is that 9 of 9, 12 of 12, 25 of 25, or 59 of 59? What is the percentage of probability of the MRCA for the various number of markers tested?

Thanks for any answers furnished.

Art Thomas
