Paternal Distant Relative Matches

My father's relative finder results seem to be partially complete at 23andme.com.  He has only 142 matches.  For comparison, my mother and I have over 1000 distant relatives in the database.  Ironically, I have only a few generations documented on my mother's lines, but so much more on my father's lines.

There are several connections who have extensive genealogies and are willing to comb over our trees to search for a common ancestor.  These results have shown me that I have so much more paper documentation to discover.
