    illegitimate child finding father

    Thanks. I have requested to join the DNA detectives. I will have to check as to what type of test my MIL did.

However, my Mother in Law does not know who her grandfather was. Her mother was illegitimate and there is no record of the father. So my SIL suggested my MIL do a DNA test. She has done this and I have registered it with FTDNA and Gedmatch. This has produced many matches but I have no idea how to start sifting through them to try and find her grandfather. This DNA thing is all gobbledy gook to me and I just don't know where to start. Can someone tell me what to look for to find this man ?
    Try to look at the matches together and see if the family trees make any sense, or if there are surnames in common...hopefully, she took the autosomal test...
