I'm waiting on two different sets of Y-DNA results to arrive. I have read
about FTDNA's choice of private vs public for those results as it pertains
to their database. What am I missing? Why would one not make those results
public in hopes of finding matches?

I understand comparing them to the surname group, but wouldn't the database
be a possible information source as well?
