  • Two Second Cousins question

    I have two second cousins who tested Y37 both from the same surname group and both same great grandfather. Cousin number one matches several men at 1 GD but cousin number two matches the same men at 3 GD. The two second cousins match each other at 2 GD.

    Is this an indication that the mutations in cousin number two were from his father and/or grandfather?

    All their matches are with the same surname. So, I'm happy about that.

    I would lean towards a yes, that it is an indication that the GD of 2 mutations happen either in the one 2nd cousins Grandfather(Great Grandfather>Grandfather), his father(Grandfather > Father), or himself (Father > himself).

    Or a single mutation may have happened in one generation and another single mutation in one of the following generations.
