November 29, 2009. Journal entry number one. I am writing this journal so my children, children-children, and so on will know about their ancestries. Our roots first begin in Ghana, Africa, which is the western side of Africa. The exact year is unknown but around the 1710’s my great-grandmother and great-grandfather times eight were forced to migrate to the United Stated as slaves. In my research I found that our ancestries were spilt up and our great-grandmother times five was sold to the Smith Plantation, in Georgia. Our great-grandfather times five died on the long journey across the Atlantic. The Smith’s kept very detailed documents on there slaves. My ancestor’s. Our great- great-great-great-great-great grandmother was born 1728. Her name was Ama. Which means born on Saturday. Great grandmother times eight name Awotwi. Awowi means eighth born child. Efua fathered children with Awowi. Efua is our great-great-great-great- great-great-great grand father. Efua is also Ama father. How Awotwi and Efua lived is not exactly clear. All I can do is speculate that they lived off the land. Picked cotton, and did what ever else was asked of them. The 1700’s was a busy decade.
