Hugh Quarshie on Who Do You Think You Are?
The journey ends happily in Holland where Hugh meets his European family –and comes across written documents and some incredible photographs that I hope will end up in his ancestral village of Abe –or some museum in Ghana one day and discovers that his great, great, great-grandfather –not only loved his African family but left them all his worldly goods in his last will and testament. Hugh’s personal journey back in time –was touching, well researched and heartwarming –and I guess reflecting many Fantes and some Ga’s ancestral history. My mother’s maiden name is Spio and I have often wondered about her family and the role the Portuguese played in her ancestry!
