just curious...if anyone knows...

onthe initial "beta" testing for the "family finder" test- how manypeople will get tested before the test is offered to the public - andwill the results from this group be large enough that we might see"matches" ( or find out that people are related...)?

i sure hope there's a push in Ireland & england to get the test done

thanks all
