    God bless you, Queen Quet. I only became aware of you today and I am thankful for you and your powerful and important work. My Geechee roots came from my mother. I am so grateful that she shared so many of her expressions and words with me. I want to share these with my grandchildren.
    I thank you for all the good you do! Sending you Lots of Love.

        My mother was from a small country town: Hampton, South Carolina. Her family name was Rodd. I did a little research and found that my great grandmother and grandfather were Lottie and Adam Rodd. My mother’s father was Amos Rood and his wife was Matilda. I’m so glad that I can usually pick up a Geechee accent when I hear it. I didn’t learn until I was grown, where my mother’s accent came from. I love it when I find so many of my neighbors have Geechee roots. It fascinating to me. Thanks for letting me share.

  2. You need to do research to find out the county and state that your family lineage stems from and we can tell you if you have headed in the right direction by contacting us in the Gullah/Geechee Nation.
