Hi everyone,

This is my first post and am new in general to DNA research. I had my AncestryDNA done and was able to get the raw data and covert it so I know what my YDNA is I think:-) and I also know you cant find out MTDNA out of it. But on GEDmatch I found my cousin has his info on there and he had his MTDNA info on there. He is my grandmother's sister's son. They are identical twin sisters so am I correct in my rudimentary understanding me and my cousin have the same MTDNA?

Assuming you refer to your maternal grandmother yes.

Yep that is correct. All on my mothers side. Thanks for letting me know. I thought it was but didnt want to assume anything since I just started.
