Meantime, FTDNA checked in with their response, saying that they are in
possession of a sample sufficient for additional testing.

Thank you to all who commented.

get the original company to give up the sample and send it to FTDNA by
mail. I've never heard of this occurring, but that doesn't mean it
can't happen.
