DNA & family history

I have taken a DNA test through 23andme. This is an 'autosomal' test which samples DNA inherited from all my ancestors. Potentially, it should match anyone who shares one of my ancestors, although the likelihood of a match falls off after about five generations. If you have done a similar test, you can check whether you match my data on the GEDmatch website. My test kit number is M031124.
