Congratulations. That is great news for you.

If they share the same or similar rooted or sounding surname and the
prior traditional evidence indicated they were brothers, i.e., such as
interacting in each others children's baptism events or land or estate
dealings, then the 37/37 match certainly confirms that surmise. Nothing
is 100% sure though. For example two could be brothers and one a first
cousin all coming from the same original male grandfather back in the
homeland for example, and the Y-DNA could still match exactly. But if
the traditional evidence suggested they were brothers, the DNA test does
not dispute that, and further confirms the surmise, imo.
