Wilbert Grant he left Guyana in 1969.He made four of us two boys and
two girls and we are trying to find him,we pray every day that he is
alive.We are all big men and women now we would just love for him to
see his grand children and his in-laws,my name is Andrea Grant I am
now living in america.My mom said that he have a cousin by the name of
Leyland Forde also my grandmother was a Forde my father was born 26th
March 1943 please any body that knows him or his cousin please please
give them this e-mail address. My father we know that you love us,we
love you too,we have been trying to find you for so long .I pray that
by the power of god that some body know you or Leyland. Have a bless
day my internet friends. Thank you all.
My father from what Ii learnt was born and grew up on the railway
embankment in georgetown, he was born on the 26/03/1943. my mother
only knew his mother never knew anything about his father. you see he
was raised by his aunt who only past away about six months ago. she
had moved and was living in linden for a number of years but her
daughter would sometimes come and visit us from time to time. she died
at the age of 85, but his mother died about 16 or 17 years ago. he use
work at guyana water authority which was also known back then by water
works. my youngst brother was only two weeks old when he left for the
states and that was 1969 december.
Another thing my mom say's to ask your mon if she knows of one Leyland
Forde which is the brother of Michael Forde. the same Michael that was
killed in a bomb attact during the late 50's probably early 60's my
mon cannot remmber clearly, he was a PPP ACTIVIST. but anyhow Leyland
was my father's uncle nephew too, brenda father, Mr. forde who had
raised him along with brenda and her brother lennox. so you see how my
father had adopted the name forde but subsequently it (the name) had
changed to Grant which my mon said was supposed to be his father's
name. so his and her married name was Grant. anyhow Leyand went to the
states some time in the 70's. my mon say that if your mother could
remember him. he probably might be one of the clues to in finding him.
that would be if he had ever seen him which my mon thinks he probly did.
My father first address my mother say's when he went up was 308
sterling place brooklyn 11216. that was from where he corresponded
then went in to seclusion.
Andrea, try using zabasearch.com (best) and other whitepages databases.
Assume he has not strayed far from the NY tri-state area.
Zaba gives birthdates in some instances so you can eliminate many from the list. If you know his middle name you can eliminate more Wilberts. The objective is to narrow the field before you start looking starting in your area, which I presume is NY. A phone call to those with no birthdate or middle initial listed might help as our accent betrays us to each other. I did find one:
As you see not born in March and MD is not far from NY. Likely not him but why not check with a call unless you know his middle initial is not "E". What is his middle initial?
Good news is there are no Wibert Grant with a March 1943 birthdate in the Social Security Death Index.
After exhausting the various white pages databases on the web try Ancestry.com and genealogy.com and perhaps pay the $30 or so to find info on a specific subject after you have narrowed it down.
Have hope. I found my younger brother after a 10 year search; he was born in the US and adopted out. I am now involved in gathering my Guyana genealogy that goes back as far as 1786.
- Hello again, I just found out that my cousin Shaun Bollers married a Glenda Grant from McKenzie. Sound familiar? Alan
