Let me begin thanking you for your actions, which spoke volumes. Let me continue by introducing and or reintroducing myself to one and all. The given European Christian name is irrelevant.  M'lilwana Osanku is the chosen name.  I’m born in New Amsterdam, Berbice. My siblings, children of Muriel E. Sancho , in order of their birth are George, Hamilton, Mariette, Compton, Cheryl and Colin. George, Hamilton, and Cheryl were born in Nabaclis. This Ross family, member of the Sancho clan, was resident in the Golden Grove – Nabaclis area, for a number of years, until maturity and economic opportunities suggest they reside elsewhere.
The Golden Grove –Nabaclis area, is the adopted home of the Sanchos as their surviving story indicates.
Now bear with me as I continue by adding, the Guyanaca.com article a Profile of Nabaclis, which I posted was a catalysts, a battery charger, If I may, in the developing the idea of a forum, to discuss issues relative and affecting the Golden Grove –Nabaclis area. I found the article inept, juvenile, and not at all reflecting the articulate and the intellectual, who call the area, home. It did not touch on sports, education, music, religion, the slave masters, and the ethnic groups who resided there.

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…

Who are Descendants of Clarence Sancho and Mary (David) Sancho?

Are you aware of Samuel David and Mary (David)Sancho of Golden Grove? Samuel David was a Sergeant of British Guiana Police Force.  Samuel David departed in 1945 or 1946. Mary David and Clarence Sancho were married. The couple had about seven children. Much respect to Wainwright for pointing pieces of information on the David and Sancho union  to me some 43 years ago. Who must I consult to acquire the  knowledge  relative to David family  especially the descendants of  grand Uncle Clarence  Sancho?

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969). An Unsung Guyanese Patriot

Bertrand Aaran Abrams (1929-1969).  An Unsung Guyanese Patriot “On July 21, 1954, the plaintiff was convicted by the magistrate of the East Demerara Judicial District for being on June 10, 1954, in possession of prohibited publications contrary to s. 4 of the Undesirable Publications (Prohibition of Importation) Ordinance, and fined $25 or one month’s imprisonment in default. The complaint was filed on June 30, 1954, and made returnable for July 7, 1954.”  “As the appeal against your conviction has been abandoned and the fine paid, I have to inform you that, in accordance with the ruling of the Law Officers for the breach of the emergency regulations, you are dismissed from your post as a Cl. II Assistant Teacher in Cane Grove Anglican School as from 11th January, 1955.”  - Joseph H. Jones, Manager, Cane Grove Anglican School. Opinion – I have no recollection of anyone telling Bertrand Abrams was fired as a school teacher. And for whatever the reasons offered by the colonial authorit…
