Hello, Onna writes, two years ago I wrote in this way, I want to be more specific. I look for signs of my grandfather John Watts, only by genealogy know of my roots. My grandfather J Watts worked in Caripito around the years or the decade of the 30's. Someone generous who can help me, with a piece of information, a photo, or some comment. Infinite thanks Onna

What a find. I was a “Shell” oil brat and went to the Las Delicias school in Maracaibo. We were there from 1948 to 1960; living in La Concepcion, Lagunillas, Mene Grande (?), maybe Cabimas. The latest and longest residence was in Maracaibo, casa 40, Bella Vista. The pictures of Las Delicias bring back wonderful memories of that time and place. Learned to play tennis and “rounders”. Mr lemmon was a favorite and I still have the graduation book that was presented to us as wecompleted our school year before going to high school in the states (boarding at St. Bernard in Cullman, Al). If appropriate, icansearch formy photos of that time and share them. Anyone recall Mike and Allen Dow, Francisco Hernandez, Nestor ???, Ann Fosh, Elizabeth ??? (superintendant’s daughter?), peter ??? (Dutch neighbor), or Basil (Belgian neighbor). How about the tequenos from Club Bella Vista? Cheers to all, robert

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
