Family finder is extremely useful and can help you confirm other family lines and add them to your tree, lines that in my case I wouldn't have been able to prove any other way.

One example is a case where I was in contact with someone who said they had a family story that they were related to me through a first marriage of a relative. As their 'second' marriage noted the man as a batchelor I was skeptical, however family finder proved the man was correct and the certificate had incorrectly recorded a man as a batchelor (instead of a widow) at his second marriage. Family finder proved our DNA connection and his connection with others has specially pointed to that particular family line.

This is just one of many cases where family finder has been crucial in the extension of my family tree!
