Would it be possible to clarify the following?
The quotes are >from either the JG or FTDNA websites:
"Y-DNA strictly checks the paternal line, with no influence of any
females along that line... A single test allows you to verify if 2
males are related".
"mtDNA: ...Note that the mtDNA strictly checks the maternal line,
with no influence of any males along that line."
Does this mean to say that:
(1) a male descendant of, say, a female cousin, will not be
detected at all using the Y chromosome test?
(2) a descendant of, say, a male cousin, will not be detected at all
if using the mitochondrial DNA test?
