I'm trying to find information about my great-great-great grandparents Charlotte Goveia, and Francis Goveia who were born in the either in mid or late 1800's in British Guiana. I know they had a son Francis Goveia Jr who is my uncle but i would like to know their other children especially the name of my great-great grandfather born in 1903. Their birth records are in the Guyana. if anyone can help that would be great

He is traveling alone.

His wife’s naturalization papers are available at Ancestry.com - looks like she filed after his death.

Did you not look at the documents so graciously provided to you?

I did.

By the way, the correct response should have included, "Thank you for your efforts."

Maybe even, "Wow! That's great!"

Passenger lists don't include a spouse's name unless they are travelling with them (or sometimes if they are the one listed at their destination).

The naturalization records are for Augusta Goveia, nee Drummond, widow of Francis.

You would have to find a record that names them - usually a birth, marriage, or death record. Ancestry.com does not have any records from Guyana. FamilySearch appear to have some newspaper birth/marriage/death announcements from Georgetown, Guyana: https://www.familysearch.org/search/...Open=792101-50 - however, they have not been digitized yet, so you would have to visit the Family History Library in Salt Lake City to access them (or wait for them to be digitized).

But for civil records, you would likely have to write to the proper organization/department in Georgetown and order copies of records, if they are available: https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en...l_Registration
