Guam - The Guam Ancestral Lands Commission says they are now awaiting the deed for 450 acres of property at South Finegayan recently returned to Guam by the federal government.

Joey Leon Guerrero a land agent at GALC says the deed is expected to be forwarded to the Guam Economic Development Authority and then transferred to Ancestral Lands. GALC director David Camacho say the land will become part of ancestral lands inventory. Camacho says they are working to find all original landowners who may have a claim to the recently acquired land.

"There is still property that was released to the U.S. Ancestral Registry and still there is no claimants so we have vast people that they know that their property where condemned from way back and up to come in come in and see us if they are part of this thing," he said.

Once GALC has received the deed for the property it will either be returned to original landowers or a request for proposal to lease the land will be issued and revenue generated will go towards compensating land owners who did no get their land back after is was seized by the federal government.
