    Looking for anyone related to Viginia Sison-Fernandez? She was born Aug 1, 1943 and died Sept 8, 2006. She married Primitivo Fernandez Jr. From San Juan Manila. When i visited my father’s home as a child in Manila, I saw portrait of my mom and she was cinco de mayo queen. She said her mom passed when she gave birth to her. There were 8 kids and she was adopted by aunt n uncle…. i met one aunt, her cousin, one time back in 1981 Christmas

    Hello. I am from Bayambang, I am looking for Caretero family members in Pangasinan. We are having our 1st Grand Alumni this May 2017. Our school Cason Elementary School in Sancagulis Bayambang, Pangasinan, the land or site was donated by someone who’s surname is Caretero. Gusto ko malaman kung nasaan na kaya mga kamag-anak nila, o kung may alam sila tungkol sa pagdonate ng lupa noon. God bless.

    Hi! I’m Lyle and I’m a foodie, chef and enthusiast photographer who wants to write about and document the food of Pangasinan. There are as posted on travel sites some food like puto and bangus. But I am looking families who loves to cook, who has specialities or heirloom recipes which would speak of or represent Pangasinan other than that already mentioned in travel guides. I am also looking for restaurants who are serving old world Pangasinan food till this day. I hope you could assist me here since I do not have much financing to knock door to door and do my research.

    yes, myles… of course the Portuguese royal house of Braganza… and its cheaper late 90s tagalog telenovela counterpart… “Valiente” where it highlights a fictitious estate called “Hacienda Braganza”… oh i can still remember odette khan and tirso cruz iii… hahahaha

    Maybe because Braganza rhymes with “extravaganza,” Noni? 🙂 🙂

    (Braganza is, of course, the royal house of Portugal vs. the Windsors of England, the Bourbons of Spain & France, etc.) Actually, now that I think about it, I had a Braganza classmate in UP. Yes, she was quite fair.

    i love the BRAGANZA surname…it always sounded delightful to my ears…sobrang alta…hahaha

    Yes i am referring to the Maramba family which is behind the Liberty Flour Mills

    Enrique/Toto, I believe it is BengZon (with a “z” and not an “s”).

    Enrique, you’re referring to the Maramba family which is the clan behind Liberty Mills, right?

    Myles, you are correct, Speaker Joe de VeneCia was married to Victoria Perez, the daughter of Speaker Eugenio Perez, before he married Gina Vera Perez, the daughter of the owners of Sampaguita Pictures (I believe, both wives are not related). Victoria is the mother of Joey De Venecia.

    The Estrellas and the Agbayanis are also prominent Pangasinan families. So are the Macaraegs.

    it was the Mondragon-Gonzalez who were from Pangasinan.

  17. Myles Garcia said,

    Definitely Perez: the family of the late Speaker of the House (I think post-war and in the early 50s), Eugenio Perez…by the way, whose first daughter was the first wife of Jose de Venezia.

  18. Enrique Bustos said,

    The Maramba, Pecson, Perez, Bengson, Braganza families.
