First results back on the first DNA test

More quickly than expected, the initial results for the 12 marker test are in for my Dad's DNA sample.
They can be viewed here:
FamilyTreeDNA have sent us the names of over 750 men who also are matches at this very basic level of testing. None are Fitz(-)Henrys, which just goes to show that the basic level tests give a lot of false postives.
However, there is a gentleman by the name of Mr. Paul John Mac Henry, Sr., and I will be watching this name with interest when the more detailed results come in. This may be an ancient Irish variant of the Fitz-Henry name.
