Ancestral Cousin Marriages

Cousin marriage between parents can be calculate using Pedigree Collapse Calculator. Hence, this tool is now obsolete.

Ancestral Cousin Marriages is a tool to find if there are any cousin marriages for a particular DNA. It also calculates cousin relationship between each parent. It is based on Runs of Homozygous and the long shared segments in cousins. It supports both build 36 and build 37. FTDNA Family Finder and 23andMe raw data can be used as input.
