Greetings, in the name of the Ancestor.

I never wish to be involved in this sorry epic, but it's as was the case in most of my childhood, Muriel's unrational behavior has stretched forth from beyond the land of ancestor, to drag and to humiliate me, into an unwanted situation, in defense of her morals and legacy.

Bhiaro Prashad, the New Amsterdam lawyer stole Muriel's Heathburn property. Then, there is her business transactions with Birchell Ralph, the result Muriel lost her # 68 village property.

I am neither privy to all the details of your transactions with your aunt nor am I committed to the house you built but however I'm concerned with Sancho's legacy and most particicularily Muriel's legacy.

I am committed to identifying, locating, researching and documenting, the Sancho family members. I am committed to obtaining records of the Sancho family members, from the various sources, both in Guyana and beyond her political borders.

I'm living for the sole purpose of telling the epic journey of the Sancho family and or contributing to the publication of the history of the Sancho family. I am concerned with the repetition of events and conditions, as they relate to this family; which shape, mould and now plague this family for at least three generations.

I recall being told Alexander Sancho; my grandfather experienced similar circumstances following the death of his father, Tuckness Sancho. The result a number of Tuckness Sancho's children, including and primarily, Alexander and Edith, were disinherited, what was intended to be bequest to them. Armed with that knowledge I never visited Winifred Moore, my great aunt. I am privy to second hand information, regarding the dispute between Uncle Oswald and Aunt Margaret. I do not ever recall them in the presence of each other, much less speaking as only siblings should do.

I often wonder why the extended family structure as is practiced in black life and culture prior to the European invasion of Africa, collapsed in British Guiana, and primarily among the children of Sancho. Was it family squabbling, fussing and fighting over legal documents; wills, and property, etc? Were the Denbow family, T. Anson Sancho and others correct in their actions of not associating with us?

Those factors were prominent, within my thought process, on several occasions I spoke to my mother, concerning her estate. I never wanted to be come involved in an environment of immediate family squabble over property in Guyana. My views on the meaning of life and Black life and culture in Guyana, which I term a land of sorrow heartbreak and Black holocaust - slavery, give rise to my innermost emotions that all I ever want in Guyana, is to rest in peace, in an unmarked grave, in that sacred ground, very near to Alexander Sancho, among a number of my ancestors, in the Sancho family plot.

I prefer grounding with my brothers; Sancho, than fussing and fighting against them. Who is claiming the house you built? The last information I had on that house is Carol Rodrigues was residing there. I have no knowledge, who if any one pays the taxes and or rent. I am appalled; Sancho would hide behind the legal system in any country to defraud another Sancho. A scenario, such as that would make the activities of likes, John Gladstone and others seem correct in their doings. I guess, folks will do what ever they think best suit their needs, wants and what have you.

I wish with all the Sancho in aah me, this whole sorry episode never reared it's ugly head and is implacably resolved, and all parties can rally around what we have in common, and that Sancho, is Sancho.

Peace, may the force have mercy upon us and be with us all.

M'lilwana Osanku.

Identifying Gill Lineage - Descendants of Sancho

Soliciting Information - Gill of Guyana and Barbados.  I am really focusing on the Sancho lineage. I believe it's best to chat about the Gill people from the migration from Barbados to Demerara to the known members of Buxton and Friendship and thus to Golden Grove, Nabaclis and Haslington and their movement beyond Guyana in the twentieth century. I need to be enlightened.  I am soliciting information on the lineage of the kinship of GILL. I need to identify the Sancho ancestor of the members of the kinship of Gill, mentioned below. I am referring to Gill of Buxton-Friendship and their off springs - Arthur Gill and his descendants – of Golden Grove-Nabaclis.  The known members of this Gill kinship of Gill includes; Susan Elizabeth Gill died on Sunday, November 27, 1938.  Ms. Gill was 91 years old. Ms. Gill is the mother of Edith Gill, Irene Gill, Winnie Gill, Arthur Gill, Iris Gill, Oscar Gill, and Princess Gill. Source: The Daily Chronicle - Monday, November 27, 1939: page eight.  Art…

"Racism isn't resolved in bed no matter who's sleeping with whom" … Jan Carew
The aim is to identify the ancestry of Sancho.  Wherever Sancho is found, ascertain the relationship to Bentick Sancho, and Tuckness Sancho. It is understood;Sancho of Berbice, Sancho of Guyana, in general,  and Sancho of Suriname are descendants of Bentick Sancho, and Tuckness Sancho.
Sancho of Berbice is found in several locations including; Rose Hall Town,Port Mourant,Corriverton, and New Amsterdam. This Sancho is interested, in Sancho who are about contributing to this process. This Sancho is grateful to Sancho who consider the future generations of Sancho.  This Sancho is with future generations of Sancho will benefit from the effort you and I make today, to know ourselves.
I am interested in the story of the kinships of BENTICK, CAMPBELL, FRIDAY, KISSOON, SANCHO, SOLOMON, and YOUNG (YOUNGE) of Guyana, and the Caribbean basin and the authentic history of the working people of Golden Gr…
