As I continue to find documents or information on Guyana and any other place for the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, I'll add them to the blog to help in your research.
So one of the best places to search for ancestors is in newspapers. It may not have been a place we would think to do so today with the technology we have in place but it is definitely a great place to look for back when our ancestors were around.
In Georgetown Guyana there were at least two newspapers that were in print in the 1800's. Newspapers were used to make announcements and this goes for entire Caribbean and South America.
The first one is the Colonist newspaper. The newspaper can be found on one film but covers from 1864 to 1880. Simply scroll down to the bottom to find the film. Take a look at my prior posts before ordering films.

Another newspaper is The Argosy. This collection covers announcements for birth, marriages and deaths during the years of 1880 to 1896. This collection can be found on two films.
