    This was an upgrade from Big Y-500. I had contacted Customer Support before ordering the upgrade to Big Y-700, because I was not sure there was a sufficient sample left to do the test. I got a reply from a Big Y specialist, who told me there were two vials from 2013that were unused and in storage (extra vials I had ordered at that time, attempting to have enough for future testing), PLUS his two original vials from 2012 (transferred from National Geographic, GENO 2.0), one of which seemed to look unused! In addition to using the original vials for the Geno 2.0 test, his tests at FTDNA after that were:
    • 2013 - Y-DNA 67
    • 2013 - mtDNA Full Sequence
    • 2013 - one SNP test
    • 2014 - upgrade to Y-DNA 111
    • 2015 - SNP pack
    • 2017 - Big Y 2.0
    There was an "upgrade" to Big Y-500 in mid-2018, which was apparently done for free at the time (adding the STR markers from 112-550, which were already tested in the earlier Big Y test).

    The Big Y specialist did say that they couldn't guarantee they would be able to produce results for the Big Y-700 test, because they wouldn't know the quality of any of the samples until they tested them, but there was plenty of quantity to use. I was amazed that it seemed that all the above tests had apparently been done using the sample from one vial. I had expected that there might only be one of the extra vials, maybe both, left in storage that might be usable. These vials are from an elderly male in his mid-80s, who died in 2014. He had also given a DNA saliva sample for 23andMe late in 2012, the results of which were transferred to FTDNA for Family Finder in early 2013.

                      This is scary. My cousin's results are four months now (batched Dec 1, 2019). They requested new samples five weeks ago . I chatted with them last Friday and they said 6 - 10 more weeks but his expected date on his order page still says 03/23 so I think it should be updated.
