Dear Friends,

I have received this email from a Journalist friend in the British Guardian.  Please write an article on this subject and ask people to contact me on my Email, who wish to be interview. 

I’m looking to interview someone of Somali origin who was born in Britain -- but who has now migrated from the UK back to Somaliland. The move needs to be the result of a positive 'roots' decision (as opposed to eg, accompanying a spouse who happens to be posted to the 'homeland' by his/her company). This person would be currently living in Somaliland, and would hopefully still have one or two usable family portraits we could print – either paintings or photographs. Any additional old pictures or drawings they have of the house or village or town which their ancestors left behind to come to the UK would also be excellent. We would also need to take a picture of the person I interview for the article.

All I would need would be 30 minutes on the phone to discuss their family story. Why did their ancestors come to Britain? How did they find it? Why did they go back, and what is it like?

The interview would appear in the Guardian as part of a special issue about people returning to their ancestors’ homeland.

We need to highlight the positive contributions made by our people her and in Somaliland.
