Re: Where are Freedmen DNA testers

I've tested with all the big 3 DNA companies (FTDNA, 23andMe + AncestryDNA). Plus 3 of my siblings (sisters) have tested with one of the 3 companies and we're all on Gedmatch. From our experience we have figured out who is our GG Grandfather and how we're matching other Choctaw descendants. In my situation our Indian Territory slaveholder descendants are my matches as well. We're descended from the same Choctaw Garland's & Folsom's families. A few of us are FB friends and communicate often. Two I've met in person and we get along really well. We collaborate on genealogy also. Last summer a Choctaw match did an internship at the Smithsonian museum of the American Indian. I picked him up and brought him to the house and then another weekend took him to B-more to my daughters and also the inner harbor & Ft McHenry. I joked with him and said tell your mother your Black cousins took care of you.
