Africa

There is a branch of the family in Southern Africa whose migration was relatively recent in genealogical terms. I have contacted them to help fill in the gaps…

My Aunt Martha Granger Shout spent some time in Rhodesia as a nurse, and subsequently was in Ghana for several years. She served as the principal / sister tutor at the nursing school in Cape Coast. She was there during the time of independence and President Nkrumah. I was briefly in Accra in the 1981 working on a project at the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. My stay was curtailed by the  second coup of Jerry Rawlings, which occurred while I was back in England for a Christmas break.
