Katheryn, here are some possibilities for "other" that you might not have
thought of.

Perhaps there is family gossip that the candidates father wasn't really their
father...and they really don't want to know the answer to that. The same
possiblity exists for previous generations. There is an emotional side to some
of the possibilities for outlying results that people may not wish to risk
entering into. Of course these are not the things that they like to discuss with
strangers who have an interest in their family tree.

It is an age old problem for genealogists.
