That is up to the volunteer project manager. You could always ask for a Family Finder Surname project for your surname if the Y-DNA project admin. didn't want to...

But question, How do you keep it a name project? Autosomal Chromosome testing (Called FF- Family Finder at FTDNA) does not stay with a particular last name. It jumps around and NOT HAVING A MEASUREABLE SEGMENT from an ancestor DOES NOT MEAN YOUR NOT RELATED.

Also Which Parent did the segment come from....A Chromosome is a pair one from Dad and one from Mom...

But you've got a grand idea... if the Surname project admin did not want to incorporate the FF into the Y-DNA project then maybe you could admin the FF side and work together...??
