Unfortunately we don't have that information from my dad's cousins on paternal side. My dad's cousin on maternal side tested and report no Ashkenazi results, so we concluded it had to be his father's side. Certainly would be helpful if we could obtain testing from paternal cousins though! My dad closely resembles his father and his paternal uncles, and so it seems highly unlikely that either my father or my grandfather were adopted. Also my father's nephew looks very much like my dad (more so than my dad's brother who is the father) and also resembles my grandmother in many ways, so that adds even more doubt to an adoption theory.

Do all descendants of your great-grandfather all have similar Jewish DNA markers? If they are only seen in one of his children's line it suggests differing parentage. Is your father not DNA related to a known descendant?
