ELDER FamilyFinder ordered for MAINE DNA

On December 1st, 2010,
I received the announcement for a new Holiday discount price for
FamilyTreeDNA FamilyFinder, from $289 down to $229, with an
order link posted on all of our Personal Pages in the left column menu,
listed as a "Special Offers" SALE through December.

So a MAINE DNA kit for #20923 FamilyFinder
was ordered on Dec. 1st, 2010, and if all
goes well to be reported before February!
See MAINE ELDER DNA webpage and links

Recently I have been having luck with my own FamilyFinder,
showing some Kentucky cousins, connecting with
Robert ELDER, b. 1760 of York Co PA, who died in KY.
A few of the "other surnames" have Scotland locations,
but I haven't discovered their connections.... yet.
Others are French-Canadians, connected to my g-grandmother TREMBLAY
and gg-grandmother DROUILLARD.

One technique which works sometimes:
Using Google to search for the cousin's posted e-mail, finds queries and
genealogy webpages, to discover more connections.

Let me know if "Other surname" cousins have been found.
