Dear Jim,
I agree with your thoughts. I would also like to strongly suggest
that people get as many of their first and second cousins tested by 23andMe
and/or Family Finder as possible. When you have the results of first and
second cousins available you can compare them to the people you share
matching segments with and have a better chance of determining on which side
of the family you share a common ancestor with that person.

If nothing else, FF has made me focus and share, and regardless of whether
or not DNA is involved, I've found new cousins and paper trails. I think as
more matches come in (I'm already having a hard time keeping up), eventually
I'll start getting corroborating, or conflicting, evidence. As with all the
Y and mt DNA results for my ancestors, I strive for 3 matches, before I
begin to feel the result is solid.
