A Colonial Desi Ancestor Project is going to be made at gedmatch. If you have US American/Colonial American Ancestry and have South Asian/Desi DNA you can send your gedmatch kit to: colonialdesi@gmail.com to be added to the project.

Rarely in history books there were enslaved and indentured South Asians in Colonial US America and it's showing up in our DNA.

One family such family is the Weaver/Bass family. The Weaver family were indentured Desi and were free in Lancaster County by about 1710.
