Backyard Fiddleheads [Moved from Ontario]

Has anyone picked fiddleheads from their own backyard? Forraging stories welcome too. I'm pretty sure I've identified our ferns as Ostrich ferns (emerging from a black stump in groups). Most improtantly, does anyone know if there are dire consequenced if I've got my identification wrong? A quick google search seems to suggest not (though of course warnings about handling/cooking safety, and the insight that all ferns may contain carcinogens-- guess I'll be drinking a big glass of red wine to make up for that).
