Sorry....I just noticed I left out something here.....

This sentence: If, you are related by his father being your father's brother
it'll prove that indeed, he's related to your father. (Not necessarily to
you, unless you have a paternity test taken.).....
should include: then a Y-DNA test will prove that indeed he's related to
your father.

And this sentence: If, he's related to you by his
mother being related to your father....then an mtDNA test can prove HIS
relationship to your father because his mother & father have the same mother
and the same mtDNA.... but your's will be from your, a
paternity test will prove your relationship to your father.......
should say: because his mother and YOUR father have the same mtDNA.

Warm Regards from Maine,
Debby Peare

Hello -- I enjoy reading this list, and was wondering about something. I am
in the process of having the haplogroup of my mother's father tested through
one of my male cousins. So far, each of my grandparents has come out a
haplogroup -- H, J2 and K. I suspect the last one will also be different.
So -- knowing that I am descended from all those groups, would I just label
myself as the dominant haplogroup I received from my mother -- H, although
only one-fourth of my heritage? Does my father's K and J2 have equal
Just something I've wondered about -- and would enjoy seeing other's
