    I'm aware of that, just speaking from a family tree perspective.

    I've seen some clashing viewpoints on whether AADOS should include experiencing Jim Crow/Red Line/etc, or if it should only include people descended from documented US slaves. Obviously descendants of the enslaved and free blacks would have endured Jim Crow, there's no taking away from that.

    Agreed 100%.

    Anyways I don't wanna derail your thread but this type of DNA testing can be very useful for many things.

    My 4th great grandfather was a white slave owner. His name is also on my third great grandfathers death certificate. My paternal haplogroup is European, and I don't know who that ancestor was.

    Not in my genealogy but, when I was first out of university, I lived in the slave quarters of an old house, it was made into an apartment.

    Canada had abolished slavery in 1798, but there was a thriving illegal slave trade well into the 19th century. My apartment was in an old house. There were two three bedroom apartments on either side of me, while I was in a 1 bedroom that was in the middle of the house. It was a weird setup, once in the front door I had to walk up stairs and it looked like the apartment was originally just one big room, and the bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and living room were added in later renovations. Originally, this was like a secret room in the house where the slaves would not be found if the police raided the place.

    Not the type of person to believe in the supernatural, but superstitious locals, usually older people in the neighbourhood, said there was something in my apartment which would cause anybody in there to experience overwhelming sadness... coincidentally, I went through a depression around that time for which I had to be prescribed antidepressants... and I have been better ever since I moved out of the place.

    I don’t think the locals knew about the house’s slavery history, I didn’t find that out until much later and came across it by chance, pretty much, but they believed there was a sad presence in that particular part of the house.

Obviously once you get closer to the late 1800's it becomes much harder to tell, though my DNA matches pretty much all descend from the same founding families in the 1700's. Never said it was an exact science, but when everyone begins to descend from the same people in 1700s to early 1800s, becomes predictable.

    Example: If I have over 10 predicted 3rd cousin matches all descending from the same couple in 1860 and no one else, and we all share the same DNA segment, then it's fair to say that's probably how I'm related as well.

    Additionally, I have a new match that is a predicted 1st cousin once removed, so it could be my parent's cousin. Her surname and family tree is of Covarrubias, and the mutual matches she shares with me are all descended from Covarrubias. While I obviously can't pinpoint the recent 1900's Covarrubias ancestor we share, but its quite easy to say we share the 1700's Covarrubias family.
    No, it doesnt work that way

    We can talk about this on another thread or PM, now do you have any stories to contribute to this one?
