// GSB Ancestors & Descendants of Goa

Gentiles: Goud Saraswat Brahmin

This is a project to compile the profiles for gentiles: GSB ancestors and GSB descendants of Goa. Many GSB descendants are Roman catholic by faith in the 21st century (Only their ancestors who were GSB's will be compiled here) and all the ancestors of descendants that are still practicing their original GSB gentile faith will be compiled here. Together irrespective of the faith type they choose, they belong to one Goan family by blood and ancestry. This serves as a catalogue to help find your ancestry.

Present day GSBs in Goa have either of the six GSB prefixes for their surnames or family names:

  1. Naique (Naik or nayak)
  2. Sinai or Sinay or xinay (shenvi, shenoy),
  3. Porobo (Prabhu) ,
  4. Poi (Pai) ,
  5. Camotim (Kamat)
  6. Botto (Bhat)
