You said My Heritage identified a grand neice or cousin once removed

Surely there are other possibilities at this level .couldnt it be a half cousin half aunt/ uncle  or half neice too .?

Possibly, although of my known family neither of my siblings have children, so by rights that should rule out any form of nieces/nephews, and I know all of my aunts and uncles, including those who would be 'half' relatives. And I'm also aware of all the divorces and re-marriages at that level, so it seems unlikely I would not be aware of them. It's all very confusing.

I'm expecting his test to show he is not my father, if I am being honest. Although I would, of course, get this confirmed with a legal paternity test. If that test shows that we are father and son, then I'll be shouting down the phone to someone from Ancestry. :D

Although if the Ancestry test shows we are father and son, then I am even more confused because there does not appear to be any possible way that any of us could be closely genetically related to any of those other relatives!! *facepalm*

Hi,
Why would you need a legal paternity test if your dad appears as a full parental match on Ancestry ?
I have reunited over a 100 adults with a parent whether long lost or through adoption as a volunteer search angel but not one has suggested a legal paternity test after getting a confirmed result through ancestry ?
Sorry to ask but was just wondering ................

I wouldn't, I would only do that if it shows we aren't.

Well, dad's DNA results came back. He matched with people on his side, but not to me. So, I am now thinking we need a legal paternity test to verify what's going on.

It's really confusing because I look so much like him and others on my paternal side. We're trying to think of any logical reason that we wouldn't match other than the obvious?

I"m a bit late to this thread, but was wondering if it might be a good idea to put it on the DNA board, where there will be people who can help you analyse your unknown matches, and maybe get some clues as to your birth father's identity.

Good luck with your search, and I hope this doesn't affect your relationship with your dad too much.
