We hope to get as many KADS worldwide into the DNA database and to get more DNA from Koreans in Korea and worldwide. This may take time but please know that this is not an overnight thing. We think FTDNA escalates their relationship distance prediction, particularly when they indicate that someone could be a 2nd-4th cousin. It is better look at the shared CMs. 325Kamra uses the Facebook group's DNA Detectives table (see below) to determine relationship distance.
