AFRICAN AMERICANS TRACE THEIR ROOTS TO GHANA.
Some African Americans in the Diaspora have begun tracing their roots to their ancestral families in Ghana through DNA technology.
The technology helps the African Americans who have lived in America and were hitherto clueless about where they come from to locate their ancestry.
Currently, there are companies in the United States that are running DNA tests to authentic the origins of the African Americans who are eager to unite with their families.
While some have succeeded in connecting with their families in Ghana and other African countries already, there are reports that many of such persons are going through the process.
Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko who has been exploring the phenomenon said some of the African Americans who have discovered their ancestry at Kasoa and elsewhere in the Central Region have connected with their families through DNA are reeling in excitement.
“When you order your DNA kits from ancestry.com or there is another company called ‘23andme’ and there is another company called ‘Family Tree DNA’; they see in your DNA kits, your origins. You just swab the inner part of your mouth with a cotton bud and then put it in an envelope and send it back to their company, they analyse your DNA. They are able to tell you your ethnicity, the breakdown of your family tree and what percentage of Africa in you and matches you to other people you share your DNA with,” he said.
Ever since the discovery, many of the African Americans have been using the same procedure to connect with their families and have been helping their relations and communities in Ghana.
Professor Frazier, a retired University Professor is one of such persons who have traced their roots to Ghana.
“I love to contribute to home and anywhere I can. My cousins have been expressing that I should focus on the education in this community. It excites me and I will do all I can to help develop my family and my community. Even before we had the chance to meet our blood relations here at Kasoa, we had series of plans to help make our people smile,” he said excitedly.
Most of the people in the diaspora who have returned ‘home’ have been meeting and discussing how best they can be of help to their families and the community they come from.
