Family Finder question #dna

Elaine Bush <erbush@...>

I have FF results for myself and for my maternal first cousin. Is it
safe to say that if there is a match on my FF list who does not turn
up anywhere on his FF list, that that match comes >from my paternal
side? It would seem so, but one of my results odd: My maternal
male cousin has a yDNA match 37 markers, 2 steps. This Y match match
turns up on my FF results as 4th to remote, however does not turn up
at all on my cousin's FF results.

The yDNA is different >from my brother's, and so I guess this elusive
FF match could be >from my paternal grandmother's side?

Just trying to understand it all.
