What is the best early strategy when there is an ALL-IN frenzy?I have had AA KK& AKs all cracked in just past couple days.It's hard to fold them. but when I call the all-in in middle position two or three others call behind me and knock me out with 9J or even less.What do you do :call and hope for the quadruple up or sit out the first few hands?

If you know you are going to get called with AA or KK, you always shove. Unless you are exceptionally good, you are always getting a very good risk/reward ration with this shove. AA vs 4 random hands has > 50% equity.

Especially in a freeroll where the top prizes are not that big, it'll save time by obtaining a big stack early rather than getting knocked out on the bubble after grinding for 2 hours.

It all depends on how many people are at the table and your position. If you are playing to stay in a tournament, it is early and you want to get in the cash, do not be affraid to fold.

The above stats are a good indication what to do. Thank you for sharing them!
