I'm not the most experienced person on this list, but I do know that you
need a female sample to produce results for your maternal line, in that it's
the only way you can get results for your mother's mother's mother's
mother's, etc., line. Although I recommend you have your mother give a
sample no matter what, if you have no female children or female full
siblings, I suggest you run, don't walk, to get it done.
Best wishes, Anne
