Hi Newish member here. I joined last year but this is my 1st time posting. Upon advisement I had my father do the Y-67 test last year. I want to upgrade his test this year. If I upgrade him to the Y-111 would he have to take another test or would they be able to use what is on file? Also, how beneficial would it be to go ahead and do the whole shebang and do the Y-700? 

Thanks so much!

1. Since he did his YDNA so recently, probably won't be a need to get more sample. However, FTDNA will let you know if that's the case. 

2. Depends on what you want to do. You match into a group with other Smiths, GRP-I-M253-25 (and that includes your autosomal kit) . If there are other Smiths who have also done Big-Y, you'd be able to see what the matches are and the variances. I suggest you contact the other people who have done YDNA that your father matches with and ask them about that.
