Six - that's impressive - the most I've gotten is 2! Then again, without the data you still don't know for sure if all of those who matched in the family tree actually matched in DNA as well.
I had read that article, and yes, there is indeed value in those distant matches - it's just a pain to trudge through all of them. I'm probably going to wait until they release their enhanced search and/or download tools.
Just to get back to the point of this topic, it's one thing to talk about using autosomal for 10 generations back which still has a possiblity of yielding information, but 25 generations is a whole different ballgame both in terms of the DNA itself and the accuracy of the trees involved.
