I think I would also ask in that case if amplification is available at an
extra cost.

I've been wondering about the same thing, Patricia. I would like to know if
they could mark some samples as belonging to deceased persons who are not
available for additional sampling and take any extra precautions to stretch
the limited DNA supply a little further. I am in the same position as you. I
have one invitation so far. It's for a deceased relative, and we were only
able to get two vials from him. He was initially tested for 37 markers and
HVR1, and then I ordered FGS and X STR testing for him at the same time. I'm
afraid that if the heirs say yes to the testing as expected, I might still
be out of luck because there may be partially used vials in both Arizona and
Houston. I was thinking about calling FTDNA to ask about this. If you get
any information on this from FTDNA or any other reliable source, would you
please share it with me?

My question is - Is this the test to use the unused vial for a
deceased relative on?
Just don't want to waste my last chance!
