I agree with John C
Over the last year I have found the four copies of DYS464 to be of key interest
and for my group that is one of the first ones I look at.
I had a 24 out of 26 match with another surname using RG that became a non
( 6 mismatches ) when we went to 35 markers using RG +FTDNA
I had predicted 464 would help and it did as 2 of the mismatches were there.
