How many Centimorgans do 1st cousins once removed share?

220 to 680 centimorgans

A first cousin of your father is your first cousin, once removed. First cousins once removed share anywhere from 220 to 680 centimorgans. Twice removed means that there is a two-generation difference between cousins.

How many centimorgans is a good match?

Centimorgans (cM) are units of genetic linkage between two given individuals. For example, if you share 1800 cM with an individual, that means you share around 25% of your DNA with them. A strong match will have around 200 cM or more.

What percentage of shared DNA is significant?

The 23andMe DNA Relatives feature uses patterns of DNA sharing to estimate relationships.

2nd Cousin once removed 1.5% 0.57% – 2.54%

How many cMs do first cousins share?

Note that a given relationship, such as first cousins, can share varying amounts of DNA because of recombination (“shuffling” that occurs at conception). You usually share about 850 cM with a first cousin, but that number could be as low as 553 or as high as 1,225 cM.
