Another thing to do would be to open a Surname study with Relative Genetics and
upgrade both to 35 markers. Then I would do the following with the possible
Results : ------ Action
A) 34 of 35 match: Seriously look in PA for a family connection
B) 33 of 35 match: Look in PA where it is easy to find information (then do C)
C) 32 (or less) Match: Wait until each family has more data so as to look
at the "ancestral haplotypes"
