Subject: Guyanese Genealogy
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/guyanese_genealogy/
This is for folks who are interested in Guyanese Genealogy, the Genealogy of the people who comprise the nation of Guyana.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Bhatchaman/
This group grew out of the need for the descendants of the Indo~Caribbean Jahaji's to Post, Search, and exchange data about their family's history, genealogy, accomplishments, and to discuss the indentureship experience. The discussions are open and all are welcome to contribute. This is the best place to obtain info to research your Indo~Caribbean genealogy and to gain info on the indentureship of Indians in the Caribbean Basin.

Can you point me to contact information for the librarian of the library of the University of Guyana, the National Archives, the National Library, and the John Campbell Museum? Inform your loop of the efforts being made to record the social history of Guyanese. Do encourage them to participate in the process.

Please assist by forwarding the contents of this email to those who are likely to assist. Thanking you in advance for your tolerance and cooperation.


Subject: Campbell Sancho and Young/e of Guyana

I am attempting to get to the bottom of the Sancho kinship. I am trying to account for all the souls birthed to the clan as humanly possible.
