FREED FAMILY DNA UPDATE !

Last year was an exciting year for the Freed family DNA project site www.familytreedna.com/public/Freed administrated by Jim Freed, jmfreed@midohio.net We have what we think are the 3 main Colonial [1700`s] Freed family lines mapped by using the Freed male Y chromosome. You need to find a male in your Freed family line that still carries the Freed surname for this test. The original three unrelated Eastern Pa. Freed lines [1700`s], lived within 35 miles of each other --- the Lutheran Freeds of Western Montgomery Co., the Mennonite Freeds of North Montgomery Co. and the Freeds of nearby Bucks Co. By the 1800`s the different Freed lines are mixed living near one another and scattered to the wind, making it almost impossible to tell or prove which Freed line our Freeds come from. That`s where the DNA project helps, it should tell you to which main line your Freeds belong. So, if you are at that Freed research stone wall and can`t find your Freed grandfather`s main Freed line, I would suggest you consider taking part in this project. If you would, at least go to the Freed family DNA site and find out what it`s all about! It smashed my Freed family`s brick wall, with almost unbelievable results. That`s the reason I`m excited about this project and telling you about it!! More test results put in the project, provide better information on all the Freed lines and helps us all. You can contact me or Jim Freed with any questions you may have. Dave Boynton
