In Response To: DNA Matches & Relationships ???? ()
I see this a lot with "newbies". She is either making the conclusion that she is because:
1. The cousin and her father happen to share the same Y-dna haplogroup OR
Many new folks erroneously think that if a female is tested then all of the matches are on her maternal line and that if a male is tested, all of the matches are on his paternal line (which is not true for an autosomal dna test).
Is the surname a fairly common one? Does she say why she is insistent that the match is on the Y-line?
