I just answered you on Facebook. Here is what I said…
If it were me, I would have him do a y67 and a FamilyFinder at FTDNA. The y67
is the DNA test you use to track a specific surname line. The FamilyFinder is
what you use for "cousin matching." I would also upload his FamilyFinder
results to GEDmatch (free).
The yDNA results can be entered into Legacy but it is pretty much a view only.
Any work you want to do with that DNA will be done on the FTDNA website and on
The way I track DNA matches in Legacy is by using Hashtags.

Subject: [LegacyUG] Question about DNA Tests
I had my DNA test done with Ancestry about a year ago.
In the meantime, my father and mother passed away.
The oldest member left in my fathers "McElroy" line is daddy's brother - my
Uncle. He is 83 years old.
I am thinking I should get him to do a DNA test. My question is: WHICH type
of DNA test should he get?
I am not that knowledgeable on the different types of DNA testing - but I do
recall that one test is more beneficial for tracking the male line of a family.
What test do you recommend??
