    That's my brother-in-law, the only male in his family who has tested that deeply so far. We can take this off-list and I can send you stuff.

    I'm new to this myself, and I am only familiar with FTDNA, not the other testing companies. But the message I'm hearing from others is that STR matches at the 25, 37 and even 67-marker level aren't so useful in relating you to a specific named family in the time frame in which surnames have been used. I don't even look at the 25s and 37s anymore. It seems SNP determination is more important in locating oneself, and what you've got to do is locate your own haplogroup as exactly as possible and then wait for a match to come along. Which sounds like a longer process but one that's ultimately more likely to be accurate. In other words, KBO.
