Ref your comment: "I guess I would go with Ancestry's $99 autosomal test, and transfer the results to FTDNA so you would have a much larger pool of possible matches and useful tools."

Just to clarify....transferring the autosomal results to FTDNA will accomplish the same thing as a Y-DNA test accomplished with them? Or no? Does the transfer of autosomal results allow participation in their surname groups?

Based on what I've read so far, I will eventually have both a Y-DNA test and an autosomal test done. My question is which should come first?

Just looking for a gut reaction from those of you who have had both tests done--if doing it all over again and "knowing what you know now"--which would you choose to have done first?
