Yes but most of it is quite accurate and I was surprised at getting those matches which are the highest matches I have listed as both parents, I did read how they compared the DNA I think I assumed the higher the connection the more accurate it would be. Any other matches listed as both parents I wouldn't have been surprised at all.

Isn't Parent 1 always the mother?

No my parent 1 is my father. You have to work it out might be easier now they have assigned DNA matches to each parent.

Mine was easy to work out because of the ethnicity of each if my parents which has marked differences.

I've got a mother correctly assigned and her daughter unassigned.

Oh crumbs! For Mr Nomad and I, Parent 1 is definitely the mother.

You'd think they'd make that consistent wouldn't you?

But they don't know which is which, they only have your DNA they have no idea which parent you would inherit certain DNA from.

People inherit different DNA from each other, the daughter may have not inherited enough distinguishing DNA to assign her to any side.
