Please HELP!!! My mother was named Dorka Andrea Garcia (DOB: 11/10/58) and was adopted at 6 months old in Venezuela. She was adopted by LOUISE & WILFORD "WILL" KREBSBACH. Her name was changed to Sheila Rene Krebsbach. I am in search of my grandmother, Pia Armonía Garcia de Garcia in Venezuela. Pia Had 6 children and her husband passed away. She was forced to put the youngest children up for adoption due to lack of economic resources. The children were adopted by Americans working for Santa Fe Drilling Company or other companies in Barcelona, Venezuela. We do not know how many children stayed with her in Venezuela? Time is really of the essence because my grandmother would be 91 years old. It will take an Angel to complete the happily ever after story of my family. My mother and done DNA testing through Ancestry and registered with Gedmatch. My mother’s Gedmatch kit number is A897323 and my number is A932665. She has x 3rd cousins and x 4th cousins. We cannot find anyone to help. I do read, write and speak fluent Spanish.

From 1956 to 1968, my family lived in Sinclair oil camp near Punta de Mata,Venezuela, Estado Monagas. The camp was referred to often as Campo Rojo or Santa Barbara. Went to Grade School in the camp and some of my teachers names were Mrs. Netherton, Mrs Hall, Mrs Dennison and Mrs Williams to name a few. For us kids life was truly a bowl of cherries, playing golf, swimming, horses and the truly wonderful weather. Some of my classmates Joe Ryan, Charley and Myriam Gamboa, Kenneth Fricke, Diana and Mark Butler just to name a few.

Hi everyone, I lived in Puerto la Cruz in 1961. My dad worked for Foster-Wheeler. I've been trying to jot down my memories of living the life of an oil/engineer brat, but I can't find anything from that era about P la C. I remember the club, and the houses, etc. Are there any websites anyone is aware of where I could find some pictures or more info? I was only 14 at the time. I can't find where we lived in the fenced community on any maps. I'm sure it's long gone. But I loved it there. Thanks, Fay

What a wonderful site. Hard to believe its been over 50 years since. What a fabulous gift we were all given by our parents to have grown up in the Venezuelan culture. We lived in Venezuela from 1952 to 1967. Lagunillas and Tia Juana. My dad's name was Charlie Reid, mom's Lil, little bros Mike. In Tia Juana we lived next door to the Miquilenas. Anybody happen to know where that family ended up? My best friend's name was Betiz. thanx for the memories Randy.

My parents, sister Pamela and I were in Lagunillas from July 1949 to 1952. We both have fond memories of that time. The Zonkers were our neighbours. Would love to hear from anyone who was there at that time. We were assigned to Bachaquero (2 contracts) when we returned to Venezulea following a short stay in England.
