So if a match is unassigned it could be because their test was processed after the last update, April 2022. That makes a lot of sense.

It could be, but at least of one of my 'unassigned' matches goes back to before I did my test in 2016!

Any other matches listed as both parents I wouldn't have been surprised at all.
This is why I thought first cousins would be more accurate to assign, the closer the match the easier it is according to Ancestry.

"... we need a lot of shared DNA segments on both sides of your family to work with. (Close cousin relatives share a lot of DNA with you, which is a big help when it comes to your whole genome being represented.)

Then, we divide the shared segments into the halves from each parent. If we can link at least 90% of the DNA segments you share with a match to one side of your family, we assign the match to that parent."

How much DNA do you share with the daughter?

There might not be enough shared DNA with you.

I have the son of a first cousin who shares 382cMs with me and 605cMs with my sister, which I've always found odd. Ancestry have assigned him correctly to Parent 2 on my list but to both sides on my sister's!

I am now looking at his mother's tree just in case.....

One of my paternal second cousins who shares 518 cM with my aunt across 19 segments shows as being related to her on both sides of the family. I am quite prepared to believe this, but all of her shared matches are either unassigned, or on my father's father's side.

I suppose this simply means that nobody has yet been tested who has shared DNA on my father's mother's side?

This feature has disappeared from my matches although it still shows on my sister's!

Has anyone else lost theirs?

Mine went and then came back a couple of days later and now it has gone again.

Looking at Facebook posts, it seems to have happened to a lot of people. But it is still in Beta.
