(Question) On my fathers side, I dont have a brother and I dont have an Uncle. I do have a male cousin, whom is the great nephew of my father. My father and his grandmother were brother and sister. Can he be useful in any way?
(Answer) It depends. How is this grandson descended from your aunt, through a daughter or a son? Your aunt would have the same mtDNA as your father and would have passed it to her children. Her daughters would have passed it to their children. If he descended from a son of your aunt, testing him won't help you.

Are there any relatives to test to get your mother's father's lineage?
On your father's side, did your grandfather have siblings?
