Thanks diplodicus, Margaret and Gadget.  I didn't expect much to be shown but wondered if a list of surnames was perhaps provided.  I may have to consider whether to make it public or not. :-\  There are no sources on it so shouldn't get indexed by Ancestry.

FTDNA site allows for a tree and surname interests to be added to their DNA site

Gedmatch of course allows for gedcoms to be added or trees

MyHeritage also have the option of adding trees and surname interests

Thanks David, having tested only with Ancestry was wondering whether surnames were provided for matches even for private trees.  May have to wait and see what I get shown when the results are in and decide whether to make the tree public or not.  Not planning on the others although may consider gedmatch possibly.

FTDNA you can just add surname interests alone. Or you can add trees that are private

Gedmatch dont have a surname interest feature but do have a DNA+Gedcom matching feature ie if a person you match with has a Gedcom AND matches you you can visit it. But be warned some have minimal information or a full tree. It is pot luck ( as other sites are)

If you are possibly going to use Gedmatch, you may as well use ftDNA and myheritageDNA as well. Fish in as many ponds as possible.

Also make sure you go to Gedmatch Genesis (beta). You can get to it via the ordinary Gedmatch or just transfer to it automatically. It's accepting a wider range of tests.

Thanks Margaret and Gadget, I'll think about it when the results get back.
