If you're asking for fingerings, you probably have a ways to go before you tackle the GB variations.
@faranakkhanoom Most everyone just creates their own.  You could purchase two or three different editions (Henle, etc) and see the differences in fingering.

This link will have a collection of different editors' takes on the Goldbergs, as well as some fingering suggestions
