Are there any cousins living who descend from your paternal grandfather's mother's mother? (Did your grandmother's mother have sisters?) If so, tell me how the cousins descend, and I will then be able to tell you whether they can be test subjects for this line. The test person can be male or female, but for every generation before the person being tested, there must be female-to-female descent back to your great-grandmother's mother.

Again, you need to look to cousins, but if there are no living male-to-male descendants of your paternal grandmother's father's line, there is no way to test for that line.

>Who to test for my mother father mother line if my

>my grandfather mother sister or the sister chidren?

Yes, assuming she had the same mother as your grandfather's mother, you can use your grandfather's aunt or her children to get your grandfather's mother's lineage.
