I came across your blog at the cemetery yesterday as we were having an informal small family reunion. I am a descendant of Francisco Gonzalez, a grandson of Ernesting Gonzalez. I will be browsing through the old posts as the signal at the cemetery is too slow. I just wanted to thank you. I learned a lot from your blog and it was very nice to touch base with eelations and know more about my family history. All the boys and pieces I have been hearing feom my relatives were sort of confirmed from what I read. Hope to get in touch more.
I am looking for my ancestors with the surnames of Lipio, my late father’s surname is Lipio & my granny is Tan/ both hails from Cebu as what i heard from my mother ( i believed i’m the only daughter, presently living here in the UK of GB, married to a Briton) i don’t have any known relatives of my father side!!! please help me to find the Lipio and Tan clans.. thank you very much & will do appreciate your wee infos if there any..
I came across your blog site two years ago while researching my book, The Kapampangan Mystique, now nearing completion. While JDN’s Center for Kapampangan Studies provided much of the cake, your intimate trivia was great icing.
Am tracing Leony and Ato Gonzalez– you must know them as their parents hail from Apalit, like your ancestors. Both were my upperclassmen at Ateneo at Loyola Hts. Leony and I were both consultants at the PIA (later Presidential Economic Staff). Lost track of him since.
Godofredo Rodriquez of San Fernando was a co-graduate . He retired from J&J. I wish to contact him about our golden anniversary early next month.
Dacal a salamat, Toto.

I am looking for my ancestors there in PI. My grandmother side last name is Prudente and my grandfather last name is either Helito or Galito. I know they are Spanish descent. Will you help me find the geneology.
Great to see you here, my friend!!! Your daughter Chesca found herself here months ago!!!
I’ve been meaning to visit your family all this time but my schedules have been tight. I’ve been wanting to express my sympathies to Inma and the family on the passing of her brother Javy in Barcelona. I got the sad news from your Zaragoza-Roxas second cousin Regina Lopez Araneta-Teodoro in faraway Vancouver.
Now, that’s new about your father-in-law Jose Ortoll, Concepcion “Conchita” Zaragoza, and Mercedes Zobel. As the senior members of the affluent Spanish mestizo community repeatedly said: Mercedes Zobel de McMicking and Carolina Tuason de Zaragoza, Conchita’s mother, were the two richest ladies in Manila during prewar [ and postwar ].
Hola, Como estas? I was surfing the net and came upon your website. I’m impressed to say the least. You’d give Diana Vreeland a run for her money. Shake the jewels of those arthritic shriveled arms of so-called Manila’s 400. Let’s get together! My home phone’s ***-****. Inma’ll looove to hear from you. I’ve been traveling a lot to South America & Spain these past years. A note for your journal: My late father-in-law, Don Jose Antonio Ortoll courted Dona Mercedes Zobel Roxas [ later Mrs. Joseph McMicking ] before he fell for Dona Concepcion Zaragoza Tuason.
