You might try your question on the Genealogy discussion board--http://boards.fool.com/interesting-story-most-of-my-relative...There are several DNA typing services that claim to help you find relatives. I would say reliability is questionable. Mine has revealed no close relatives and people who are related turn out to have different DNA. Plus the family comes from Germany, but most matches trace to England.Of course all sorts of things are possible in tracing blood lines, but I am inclined to believe the test is not so reliable. Possibly sampling is inadequate resulting in contamination or something.The service that I used puts your data into a massive database and lets you find others with matching DNA. One of my distant cousins had his tested by Ancestry. But they do not share data with the master database and we never learned how to get his info out.So caution. Don't expect miracles. This is not the DNA test used by law enforcement and to me it could be a hoax.
