Well, she does "need" someone to pay for the tests which I do not have the money for which is why I asked this question. I'm trying to do something with the results everyone already has. The money would not be given to her but to the company doing the test, plus everything seems legit to me so far (the mom, the dates, plus I around my friend when he was "dating" her [the mom]). In fact, I think everyone deserves to know who their real mother and father are. Her adoptive parents have the money but they do not want her messing around with a guy in prison.

Still, not all labs test the same loci. If the lists of genes tested are different, you cannot compare them.
She has been able to compare the results I've sent her with what she has. There are different parts (genes?) but some are the same. I have no idea about this stuff but she is going to scan both result pages into files so once I get them I should be able to post them here so maybe you can help me more. It will take a while, I use dial up and can't even connect online everyday and she uses her phone. So she is going to have to go somewhere to send me the files and then I'll have to wait for a good day to get them.

I should have both result pages posted hopefully in a week as pictures. Thanks for your help so far!

Here was the test my friend did.


Here is the one the lady took.


The test were done at two different companies.

I'm thinking if we can compare two tests like this that he would not be her father.

Each locus can have two alleles. The child will receive one allele from each parent.

Of the loci that are on both tests, five do not contain matching alleles. This would say that they are not father and daughter. I am assuming that the line for "PF" in the first test is the possible father --- your friend.

on the 1st one, your friend is [AF]? and another set of people. The 2nd one is the girl, and another possible father?

If so, I agree with suzy_q2010 - - [but this is an internet forum & I'm not a geneticist!] I would say not the father.

I misread that. "AF" not "PF".

AF = Alleged Father

I agree with prior posters. Save your money. No point in confirming the obvious.
