Folks sometimes wonder how many Y-DNA markers they should test. These days 37 markers is considered the minimum for genealogy. You might consider a larger number if you have a common surname. At the sale prices the cost of a 37 marker test plus an upgrade to 67 markers is no more than the price if you'd selected 67 markers initially.
I've not upgraded to 111 markers and would not suggest it unless there's a compelling reason.
