Gold Coast Colony (now part of Ghana)
British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in the Gold Coast Colony, now part of Ghana. This arises because of Britain's relationship with Ghana and its Colonial history.
To determine what form of British Nationality you might have, an analysis of your family's history must be done, and then applying it to the Nationality laws of Ghana that were passed over the years.
