Let p be an odd prime and k an arbitrary field of characteristic not p. We determine the obstructions for the realizability as Galois groups over k of all groups of orders p 5 and p 6 that have an abelian quotient obtained by factoring out central subgroups of order p or p 2. These obstructions are decomposed as products of p-cyclic algebras, provided that k contains certain roots of unity.
