Is Genealogy Sciency Enough?

Below is the table of contents of the April-June 2020 issue of the Journal of One-Name Studies.

The article that appeals most to me is Is Genealogy Sciency Enough?

The motivation for that article by Peter Haynes was to estimate the likelihood that there was a relationship between two people of the same last name born 8.6 miles and 65 years apart.

His approach was based on an article "Quantitative analysis of population-scale family trees using millions of relatives." There's a pdf preprint here; I covered it in a blog post Longevity and Migration in February 2017.
Haynes' article reviews the findings and concludes that "there is a connection between the two Haynes' in my problem", but does not quantify his confidence in the conclusion.
