I don't know many of my third cousins and I know far less about fourth and fifth cousins. I think that it is fair to say that the 3,000 matches that I have at FTDNA are all 4th and 5th cousins and my paper trail does not go beyond 3rd cousin matches.


Every Irish person has more than 14,000 living relatives, research finds.

"People from Ulster could have up to 17,558 relations globally while people in Connacht were found to have 13,504 relatives, scientists found."
