  • Determinig Y side Relatives with FF

    I know onlyasfarback asmy grew grandfather, who came from Prussia, as a cabin boy, t Boston on leap day 1856.

    Making this a smile question, If i had a first cousin on my mother's side take a FF test, wouldn't it stand to reason that:

    1.) duplicate names on both lists will be from my mother's side.
    2.) Odd (unpaired) names on his/her card would be from their Y side
    3.) Odd (unpaired) names only list would be from my Y-side.

    Those "Odd " cousins I would then treat as people who probably originated in Prussia and write to them to see if there is a common ancestor.

    Thank you jim.

    I think people may be confused by your term "Y-side". The majority of lines on your paternal side will not share your fatherĀ“s Y-haplogroup.

    I believe your theory falls apart at point 2 as you and your cousin will not have inherited the same segments from your grandparents. It would be possible for a relative on the maternal side to match one of you but not the other.

      True only it is "highly probable" that maternal side matches
      will not match both 1st cousins. I have many cases
      there are no common matches to siblings.
