The short answer is none of the above.

If you can test both parents there are utilities on the web that will allow you to phase your results to determine which parent donated which segments of which chromosomes to you which will help you nail down which side of the family a certain portion of your DNA came from but then you'd have to test a whole lot of other relatives to start nailing down an individual.

Here's a thread on the atDNA forum that may help to explain things a little better.
