It won't be necessary to have your son or cousin take the SNP test -- your
results will apply to them.

M69 is just a label for a marker, like a part number in a catalog. There's a
good paper by Jobling called "The Human Y Chromosome," which lists the
markers and how they define haplogroups, along with lots of other interesting
information about the Y chromosome:

It may be a bit technical for you right now, but look at the diagrams and
save it for reference. You'll soon find that more and more makes sense :)
