DNA Question
Posted by: Jake Peterson (ID *****7188) Date: June 16, 2012 at 18:53:59

Hello; Got a good question for y'all.

I have theoretical question:

Person A was born to parents, but had always wondered about whether the lady who raised her was her real mother, or whether it was her aunt that was the biological mother.

This, of course, brings up questions to other family members whether or not the father is actually the biological father.

Person A is dead. her parents and their siblings are all dead, save a half aunt on the mother's side, and an aunt on the father's side.

Can the daughter of Person A take a paternity test using the father's sister (her grandaunt), to establish whether her grandfather is biologically hers?

I hope that doesn't sound complicated. I am aware of MT DNA. I also know that person A's only paternal uncle and his daughter are both dead, so no luck there.
