When and where did he live and do you have a question we can help you with?
Is this the Scottish-Russian admiral? (See Wikipedia for details.) He did have descendants. Do you have any documents, other than the DNA test, that point to this family?
yes  -- who was Alexander Greig's (below) parents?  Sir Samuel Greig?

my father was Russell Petit Greig (1911-1969)
his father was Alexander Greig born in Fife Aberdeenshire Scotland
Alex's father was James Greig (died in St. Helena, CA) also born in Fife Aberdeenshire Scotland
His father was Alexander Greig (Captain of the Micronesia and Oceanesia) -- we call him "Old Salt"
Not certain if Sir Samuel Greig was his father or if there was a generation between
This info is off the top of my head at the moment -- I forgot to bring my packet to the library (I use their computers for internet).
Will have to get back to you with documens

Where in Aberdeenshire is Fife? Curious as I have some Greig connections, but am not familiar with that location.
