Re: Researching my Adopted Grandfather #dna

As discussed below - if they did Y tests they would only have matched by coincidence.  However if they had done a Family Finder test (autosomal) they should have matched.  The good news is that there will be sales for Father's day  and if you are willing to pay for the tests - they can be done with the samples that FTDNA already has, so there would be no shipping costs.  It would be very helpful to confirm their relationship with the family finder test.  Yes I know that Ancestry is the preferred test, because you can upload to FTDNA and not vice versa.  However since your cousin is not really interested in genealogy, this requires nothing of him, other making it possible for you to pay for the test.
