as someone that has been invovled with dna testing, i want to let you know that not matching does not mean that he is not part of the family. mutations occur that lets them say it is not a match. when my dna was extended to 67 markers, i was listed as a nonmatch for the clark line, because i had a mutation in marker number 20, otherwise i was a match. in another occasion i had second cousins submit dna and they were listed as a nonmatch because of a mutation in one of the 12 markers. the one with the mutation has yet to have a match at all. you might get another known cousin to submit dna to verify the result, as i did with my dna. i found a third cousin once removed to verify my family line to be true.
