Another reason for following up on matches of different surname:

A 12 12 match of different surnames lead to finding that the two families
lived in the same place and intermarried in the 1600s on Long Island NY,
therefore a common location interest.

It also lead to expansion tests to 25 markers where the match dropped to
21-25.

But over all part of the learning experience.
