A relative recently took a Y-DNA 37-marker test. When the results were posted, there were 5 "matches," all with 4 discrepancies out of the 37 markers. But NONE of them shared the surname of the person tested.
I would have simply ignored it as a fluke, except that my ggg-grandfather on the line that was tested married a woman with the same surname as three of the "matches." I have actually done research on her family.
Is this a coincidence, or, at some point, was a child fathered by one man but raised with the surname of another? How could I possibly get an answer to this? Any ideas?
