    Kwesi James, your name Kwesi is actually Ghanaian. It is given to boys born on a Sunday largely by the Akan tribe.

  • Yolanda Pitt


    @drathth3 invader 666 It's just an alternate spelling for 'Kwesi'. It means a man born on Sunday. It's an Akan name from Ghana.

    @Phinehas Barnes well I mean, Guinea is on the ocean and they took majority of slaves from the west coast of Africa so it makes sense if those countries appear often in ancestry

    This was so sad to watch just to imagine that these people and their forefathers were robbed of their identity. At least they get to know where they came from, they should visit these places to learn more.

  • David Muchai


    @Jp Turner people who were sold by Africans.. Mostly were criminals, and war prisoners, more so men were sold out since women could easily be taken up by the tribe
