Local Events as posted in colonial British Guiana publications

Please note that the transcribed files are in PDF format, requiring the free Adobe Reader.

While you may think the Local Events data would be of little interest, most of the entries involved a citizen of the colony, so there is plenty of valuable genealogical data - including births and deaths. Surnames are capitolized for easier spotting of a desired name. All source data as described below was scanned by Tim Smellie and transcribed by Sharon Anderson.
