But, even two brothers do not have identical DNA for the FamilyFinder
to utilize, as each gets a random half the DNA of their father and a
random half >from their mother. That is why I did my sister's FF DNA too.
And, although the results (matches) are similar, they are not identical.
Presumably, in an extreme case, the DNA my brother and I (male) got >from
my father could have no overlap at all. And ditto for DNA >from our mother.
In such a case you can see how FF results would differ substantially.

Elaine Bush asked, "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?
