    Fascinating! Have you ever thought about making your family's story into a book? I don't think there are many of those kinds of books around and I can imagine many Filipinos, especially those raised in the US, would find it very informative. Most of the old generation that remember how it was in the Philippines before the devastation of the war have long passed. So few remain and those stories are all but forgotten.

    Trace Your Filipino Roots

    Notable records resources
    FamilySearch.org also has a collection of browsable images of more than a half-million Philippines court records
    (1838-1936). Court records in general may prove difficult to use; turn to these only after you’ve exhausted church and civil registration records.

    FamilySearch has an extensive microfilm collection of notarial records, mostly from Manila (1700-1970). A notary would create these records when an individual employed him to make a document official. These, too, can be challenging—especially without a good command of Spanish—but they may unlock family history clues unavailable elsewhere.

    The Bureau of Records Management holds probate records from the Spanish period, and some are microfilmed and indexed at the FHL. More-recent probate records tend to be rare. FamilySearch has filmed many land records from each province, as well as indexes to land transactions published in the Manila Gazette.

    A variety of censuses, dating to the Spanish colonial period, also are helpful; these include both civil and church enumerations. To find microfilmed census records in the FamilySearch online catalog, look under the locality. You’ll have the best luck if your ancestors lived in the Luzon and Central Visayas regions.

    Another resource not to overlook is local histories, which may include many pages of biographical information and mention as many as a quarter of an area’s families by name. The Bureau of Public Schools began collecting local histories in 1952, and today they’re in the National Library’s Filipiniana collection.

    What if you’re still stumped? You may be able to make progress by seeking clues in online family trees. Family*Search and MyHeritage are good sources for these because of their global reach. Keep in mind that a general search of FamilySearch.org doesn’t include its user-submitted family trees; you’ll first have to enter what you know about your ancestors at familysearch.org and study the resulting hits. With a little luck, you’ll get a jump-start on finding your own Filipino family tree.

    Paulino Alcantara

    Paulino’s family Paulino Alcantara was the son of a Spanish military officer, Eduardo Alcantara and Spanish-Ilongga mestiza, Victoriana Camilan Riestra. His mother was born in Iloilo on 25 February 1859. His maternal grandfather was a citizen of Spain, according to his mother’s passport application dated December 1915. She passed away in Spain in May 1926. Her obituary listed her as a widow with seven children: Eduardo, Diego, Fernando, Maria, Victoria, Josefa and Paulino. After the family left Spain in 1916 to return to the Philippines, some of Paulino’s siblings decided to settle in the islands. Paulino’s brother, Fernando, was born in Manila on 23 March 1896. He married Vicenta Rodriguez in Manila and passed away in San Juan, Rizal in 1957. Paulino’s possibly unmarried sister, Maria de la Paz, was born in Manila in June 1889. She passed away in Makati on 07 August 1956, at the age of 67. View Paulino Alcantara’s family tree Here

    ^Paulino’s 1916 trip home This week, Manila-based genealogist Mona Magno-Veluz uncovered the travel document the 18-year old Paulino Alcantara used in April 1916. The document states that he was born in Concepcion, Iloilo (erroneously marked Luzon). It confirms that he left the Philippines when he was 8 years old, contrary to the varying accounts.
