Hi Jane.  You didn't post in a Surname Project forum, but the answer is the same regardless of surname.

You can transfer your yDNA results from a Sorenson-based lab (ancestry uses Sorenson) into FTDNA for a $19 fee and then join the relevant surname project.  However, this gives you incomplete comparisons and very limited capabilities at FTDNA.

It is much more effective to use the $58 transfer option, provide a new sample, and then have a solid comparison of your result to the men tested at FTDNA, plus a haplogroup estimate, and access with full capabilities to use the tools at FTDNA - which are far superior to those provided at ancestry.

Use this link:

You can also transfer atDNA results from 23andMe and ancestry to FTDNA for a fee.  Use this link:
