    How does that compare with FTDNA's y-dna database?

    Very well thank you. And it isn't beyond the wit of man to get in touch with matches elsewhere either. I have an NGS match outside FGC, I found him and his contact details very quickly.
    Google and other social media have 'databases' in the billions. Google will find Anthrogenica posts of mine based on my terminal haplogroup.

    I don’t think so. My Y DNA is from the Scottish Borders but most of my ancestry is not from there and I would say that only a minority of my matches are from there.

    Its been absolutely useless for me aside from the curiosity. Maybe once a high level Y testing doesnt cost $600 and more people get tested and more ancient samples get tested...

    of course, my experience is based on my Y line/surname and there just isnt much activity

    You certainly can use YDNA matches to establish that people with the same surname are descended from a common ancestor -- that's one useful feature of those surname projects at FTDNA.
    It can also be useful for confirming a NPE and helping to find the biological surname/father. I found my grandfather's biological father through a combo of Y-DNA and atDNA.

    That was a sincere question, so no need to get an attitude, thank you.

    I was just wondering how FTDNA's database compares with what you suggested. It occurred to me that not everyone with Big Y results avails himself of YFull's services, and not everyone can avail himself of YFull's services, since not everyone does the Big Y or comparable SNP testing. But there are plenty of guys with y-dna STRs from FTDNA.

    Does Gedmatch have y-dna STR matching now?

    I have nothing against what you mentioned; I've done YFull and uploaded my autosomal data to Gedmatch, as well (haven't done any testing with YSEQ, though).

    It just seems to me that if one is interested in the genealogy of his y-chromosome line, FTDNA is hard to beat or replace.
