Hi :)

I have arranged various DNA tests for my family members and have been confused by one result.

Re autosomal DNA - FT DNA's Family Finder - we have received a match for my mother, which does not seem to be shared by my brother, who has also had the autosomal test done with FT DNA.

FT DNA correctly recognised the relationship between Mum and my brother as mother & son, so if there is a similarity with my mother's DNA then I would expect a similarity with my brother's.

In fact it gives no other shared matches with this person amongst my mother's other matches. I find this most confusing.

Is there a logical explanation for this, please?

Thank you :)
