Art, I have to be upfront with this:
You aren't going to find a lot of relatives with mitochondrial testing. That isn't really the purpose of it. It is best used for confirming ancestors way back along your maternal line. Since your documented maternal line only goes back to your great grandmother, you aren't going to benefit from that at present. Maybe in the future.
What you want is autosomal testing. That tests your 22 regular chromosomes and compares with other people who have tested to see what segments of DNA you share. Generally it will match you with anyone as close as a 3rd cousin, and about 50% of your 4th cousins... and many cousins who are much more distant will also match you. (See: https://isogg.org/wiki/Autosomal_DNA_statistics ). Some of those who match you will have a family tree, and by comparing your tree to their trees, you'll be able to see how your trees overlap, or if there is something suspiciously similar (folks from the same town or the same name, etc...) that's probably worth investigating to find the connection. It's really, really useful.
If you're going to pursue autosomal testing, here's the next bit of advice:
FamilyTreeDNA is one of the worst choices for autosomal testing due to the small database size (~ 1 million). The larger databases of 23andMe (> 10 million) and Ancestry DNA (>15 million) are needed to facilitate easy and useful discoveries. Even MyHeritage (>2.5 million) is a better option. See: https://isogg.org/wiki/Autosomal_DNA_testing_comparison_chart
With those bigger databases, you don't just get more matches, you get better, closer matches. FamilyTreeDNA has its place, but its autosomal "FamilyFinder" test just isn't that useful for for finding autosomal matches. Their database is useful, in that you can import from elsewhere, in order to get segment data. It's also useful if you have a very specific question that could be solved with Y-DNA or mitochondrial DNA.
US Thanksgiving is sale season for these kits, so buy yourself one each from 23andMe and Ancestry DNA now if you're able.
