Default Both Sides DNA

I have three people who share ‘both sides’ DNA.

Two are very small amount with me 53cM and 27cM.

The third is 112cM and she is the daughter of my second cousin. Her mother is only related to me through my mother, so I presume her daughter is also related to me through her father. I have gone through her well researched large tree and cannot find any connection.

Any ideas where to look elsewhere?

Sib's child has one match both sides:

Shared DNA: 8 cM across 1 segments
Unweighted shared DNA: 8 cM
Longest segment: 8 cM

Go figure.

Why would the both sides match be not showing up on the other person’s results?

It is D, she is definitely related to my mother’s side. On her results, she has no both side matches.

D shares 112cM with me.

I'm not well versed in the subject, but the reason there is so much diversity across the planet is in part due to mutation of genes between generations. Is it possible that a mutation creates a false match?

The sideview function is still in beta testing and it quite often comes up with "both sides" for fairly close relatives who are only related on one side as far as anyone knows. Seems to be a glitch.

I have 3 people that they say are on my mothers side, but they all have the same shared matches which are on my fathers side, I am just ignoring them for now! They are all pretty distant

Ah, that's useful to know, thanks. I don't have any both sides matches yet, but I'll bear it in mind.

Before Ancestry started assigning maternal/paternal matches, they assigned one ethnicity group to my mother, which could only have been from my father. With the following update, it was correctly assigned to my father. So for that time someone only on my father's side could have been seen by them to also have maternal links. Maybe the same is happening to you.

My Daughters have a DNA match which is labelled both sides - and it is indeed true.

On my husbands side, his tree clearly showed the path - from Somerset, to Melbourne and Queensland - AD is my husbands fifth cousin and from Scotland via NZ to Australia, AD is my third cousin on my mothers side.
