Actually I did some research a bit ago and on average we share 12.3% of our DNA with our great grandparents and even 3% with our Great Great Grandparents.

Now the chance of PQL specifically being able to pick out Captain John Beckett in Sam's DNA probably IS slim to none because those average numbers are more likely less since DNA swapping in recombination is completely random. So we can get more of one set of parents or great grandparents than another.

I agree with the notion of the 1945 leap, it's probable that this was another case of what happened when he'd leaped to Vietnam.
