I am looking for family ancestors who lived in Guyana. Unfortuanately, I know nothing about where they lived or much else about them except that they are most likely of Afro-Guyana heritage.

Surnames: Sancho, Campbell, Solomon, Young, Osborne, Ross, Semple, McPherson, Dowridge, Adams, Lovell
I understand several of my direct ancestors, and their siblings were at some period of their lives resident in Barbados. Those ancestors of mine migrated to British Guiana at various periods, most likely between 1835 and 1893. While the list below shows the surnames of my kinship – I am very interested in the surnames which I noticed are to be found in Barbados - primarily; Sancho, Young, Campbell, Lovell, Dowridge, Adams, Osborne and Trotman -with the hope of connecting with relatives of the Island nation.
In fact, Sancho, Osborne and Young are my main focus – wherever Sancho, Osborne and Young of the African Diaspora, are found I am very interested in the possibilities of kinfolks.
I would be grateful to all the assistance – rendered.
