One caveat, for my older cousins, the 25 year DNA sample storage
at FTDNA is a God send.

We DO NOT know TODAY
what will
be genealogically useful TOMORROW. And it is a race against TIME in
many
cases. Remember hindsight is 20/20 and so often useless. So my creed
is
(adapted from the old soldiers' order):

"Swab 'em and test 'em if you've got 'em!"

This is certainly true in my family. We just had a 93 year old male cousin
on our Lewis line that is now testing a 37 marker test. It will at least
show matches or not with three other Lewis lines that have already tested
and in Janet Crain's Lewis Project at FTDNA. These three Lewis lines are
close to time and locations and should show a match or not. I'm thrilled we
got a 93 year year old to test for our line. :)
