An emotional video of a moment an African-American woman Charnita Wilson discovered that she hails from Ghana after conducting a DNA test has surfaced online.
The development comes on the back of a news article that was recently shared.
It would be recalled that one of nearly 40 slave castles built in the Gold Coast, now Ghana, more than 70 families discovered their family tree during the African Ancestry DNA disclosure which is possibly the largest ever in the continent.
African Ancestry, the only global company notable for tracing maternal and paternal lineages of African descent to re-connect with the roots of their family used its inclusive database to help trace family trees to specific present-day African countries and ethnic groups dating back over 500 years.
Charnita was captured in the video full of expressions as her report indicated that she did not only come from Ghana but gave her the specific group she belongs to.
It was revealed that the African-American lady comes from the Akan ethnic group in Ghana.
Resounding applause filled the room immediately the news broke as Charnita was visibly filled with overwhelming emotions.

A number of news articles have come with videos that portray different emotions.
Just recently, YEN.com.gh reported that embarrassment has hit a young gentleman who intended to portray bravery by proposing to his dream lover at a huge restaurant as he found out he misplaced the ring.
The sad video was shared on Twitter by a popular user @PirateMalwana who took the opportunity to ask what his followers would have done if they found themselves in the same situation.
In the video, the gentleman whose name remains unknown was captured on his knees as the gesture is usually displayed before things went wrong.
