I'll bet you would have enormous fun with a great new way to prove scientifically up or down whether that interesting story concerning your Indian Redd ancestor is true -- take the cheek-swab DNA test.
It's Cold Case Files technology applied to Redd family history, and it can definitely tell you clearly whether your direct paternal line goes back through Indian ancestors.If so, you can easily get a National Geographic Genographic Project report on what ancient migration trail your ancestors took coming north out of Africa and into the Middle East, eastward across Asia, and down through North America.
A new Redd Family History Y-DNA Project has been formed at www.familytreedna.com/public/reddfamilyhistoryydnaproject
We'd love to have you submit a test and prove that story right or wrong about coming down from an Indian.(It won't say anything about an African-American female ancestor because that info isn't carried on the male Y-chromosome.)
The Y-DNA testkit for Redd-surname males -- swabbing the inside of the cheek -- is easy and quick -- three swabs at 60 seconds each -- no blood involved -- no medical information developed or recorded -- comes in the mail to your home -- uses the leading testing company with the largest databank.
It's incredibly fascinating and a barrel of fun.It's like aiming back through your own DNAto score a bull's-eye on your Indian ancestors' markers 200-500-1000 years ago.
