I tested with the Genographic project, what you receive is all there is. They will provide you with the journey of your ancestor from Africa. This test will not give you any specifics (tribal connections) just the geographic location and Haplogroup.
“Family Tree DNA.... Does that mean a cousin connection or just a "hey we are from the same place" connection.” I believe both of these are possible, it depends on the number of marker.
I think one has to decide if they’re seeking to find out which tribe, clan or group their ancestors belong or continue the research to include locating relative here in the U.S. Then you will be able to decide which tests are appropriate. Yes, more than one test may be needed. Trish
