Three- or four-maybe five-generation trees. This is a test broadcast.  I’m looking at how wordpress takes on family trees and family tree formats. Trying on themes, too. For instance, this one does not take too kindly to tables (Kabkad* in the time of Kolera (1883))

A note on these trees.  Where I was not yet able to find exact records to reconstruct the correct sequence of children, I had to rely on guesswork, basing many sequences you’ll find here on other indirect clues, like their respective marriages, or  births of their own children.  I had to decide that the older ones got married ahead, which is not always true of course, but better that, with some semblance of thought, rather than an entirely random order, and I hope family genealogists would agree, be it grudgingly, because family respondents usually have their own sequences, too.

The absence of earlier records (1600-1800), coupled with the difficulty of tracing each because of the non-existence of surnames yet, make it extremely hard to say who are the older families of Carcar, and this means either the really native ones or, if migrant, the much much earlier comers. We can only suspect that the oldest families must be the ones who would have had several branches already by the time of the records. And yet, it’s possible that at the time of the Claveria surnames, families may not even have remembered anymore who was related to whom, except for really closer ones, say up to second or third cousins, when those cousins could still establish their kinship and ask for the same surname. On that note, it may really be true after all what is always said in Carcar, that the Al- families were related to each other. Except, I dare say, for those that can be established to have originated from elsewhere.  For example, my own Aleonar family, whose first ancestor in Carcar came from Bohol, would be one of those exceptions, as would the Aldemita and Aleguiojo. Alcorcon and Alcudia came from Parian and Aldave from San Nicolas. But then who can say that the Bohol or Parian or San Nicolas ancestors had not also originally come from Carcar, went to those places and some descendants then came back to the land of their origin, Carcar?

Abbreviations I frequently resort to and found plentifully in these trees are “(pnc)” and “pDn”. Pnc is short for padre no conocido (father not known/recognized), the formulaic term used for illegitimate offsprings. The term remained in use well into the American era and every church and civil registry clerk knows what this means, as do genealogists. In these cases, the child is given the surname of the mother, which practice belies the belief of some families that the surnames they are using they got from an ancestor who was a Spanish priest. The more they could not use that surname obviously! Meanwhile, I use the parentheses for a partner who was not married to the person.

PDn means simply pre-Decree (Claveria) name, when the individual was still known as before 1849 or 1850, in the case of Carcar around May 1850 when the decree appears to have been implemented.  I use this abbreviation for when an individual was still using two first names and also even when the individual was actually already using the surname (mestizo Español and a few indio families).

There is also this matter like the Alfafaras surname distinct from Alfafara.

We have these two Carcar families, the Barcelos and the Alfafaras (also recorded as Alcaparas), and the first is also a different family from Barcelo.  The Emnace and Emnacen surnames are also two separate families. The four families most probably got the surnames in Carcar already.  I say that not just because the four belong to alphabetic surname groups of Carcar (Al-, Bar-, Cam-, Can-, Day-, Em-, etc.) but because all four came from Bohol–no notation as to their town origin has been found for Emnace and Emnacen but Barcelos is from Dimiao while one or two indirect records say the Alfafaras was from Loon.

But the Alfafaras surname may have died out because I have only 4 Alfafaras children–all girls. Anyway they were Catalina (married to Leon Alcudia), Dorotea (married to Tomas Aleonar), Remigia (married to Marquez Alcover) and Cornelia (married to Agustin Aldeon). However, Catalina has been identified also as Alcesto (Alcerto?) and as Cavan.

By the way, when you’re looking for a female in-law, look for her maiden name.  My family reconstructions always retain the maiden name for a woman. Incidentally, it seems it was that way during the Spanish era, too, and it was only in the American system when our women lost their surnames in favor of their husbands’. If you don’t know who a female family member married, you’d be groping blindly trying to search for her death or burial records. But if she’d just retain her family name, she’d be far easier to locate. I think even until now, Spain and France, they at least, still identify women by their maiden surnames. For example, a lady might be known around as Almudena Señora de Ruiz but her official name remains Almudena Acuña.



  1. I’m sorry, I now think html will probably solve our tabular issues with this theme. Will try that out.

    • there’s even no need for coding. I tabulated the data in excel, copy and pasted and the result is fine by me. you should have seen what the table looked like on this theme before the excel.

  2. hello,
    my grandmother was teresa Emnace alcos her father was emiliano zafra alcos and her mother was cristeta fernandez emnace i was told cristetas parents were tomas emnace and merced fernandez…do you have any records of any?some relatives say they are from car car some say fernandez is from talisay,and when i was a kid i remember the chapel in calamba san nicolas cemetary had many emnace names engraved on the walls but they have now since detroyed them when they renovated and “repaired”…also my great grandma merced was Mestiza espanol i assumed it was from her fernandez side bec she was born 1870s-1880s and said to be from talisay whose govenor was silverio fernandez..could it be that there is a spanish fernandez and also a fernandez surname given to another clan not related? best regards!

  4. hello!

    there are alfafaras here in gen. santos city. there are also the alesnas, sarmientos, ruizes, barcelonas, alcordos, etc. who all hail from carcar.

    one not so well known fact is that carcaranons were the pioneering settlers of a municipality in Sarangani called Glan. if anyone of you might happen to visit that place, it would be pure delight to see a mini-carcar down here in southern mindanao, with their own version of the balay na tisa, with the same patron saint, and same fiesta day – nov 25th, and of course same dialect.


  5. Dra Juliet Yap and family – May God be with you all during this time of sorrow. Take care always.

  15. Hi there. I was trying to research on the Suarez family which we came from but I missed the site that you told me during our very nice talk last Nov1, 2010. all i can remember is on vip’s!… that annoying rain could be the culprit or maybe age is also a factor:D You may send me the website thru my e-mail ad. Thank you so much…

  17. Hello, may i know if navarra family originate in carcar, cebu city? then gusto pud nko mhabal-an if navarra and gantuangco family are relatives, thankssss.. taga kidapawan city ko…

  18. Hello Vip,
    After reading the explanation of “pnc”, I am convinced that this was the reason why my last name was the last name of my great grandma. Nevertheless I am still interested of who or which blood line I am from. My great grandma, I remembered as Aso Cui Flores, lived in Burgos street. My question is, Is she related to any of the Cui’s in Barilli or Cebu City? Thanks for your help in advance.

    • boh, can i ask you to reconstruct your own cui family tree from the earliest cui ancestor your family can remember. that’s seems the only way we can trace back our relations in the family. btw, i’m intrigued why your great-grandmother was surnamed flores and you’re a cui. that’s why a family tree would help me greatly. doesn’t have to be professional-looking, there are many examples of correspondents to my blog who wrote in theirs. it would also help tremendously if you can place dates so i’ll be able to make a timeline of your family, in relation to the other cuis.

    • hello boh, vip…i am rickie cui and my family is originally from barile, cebu and i also know that we have relatives in carcar…i am presently trying to reconstruct our family tree with the help of my other relatives that i have met online…once i get it ready i will be happy to give you a copy…thanx…:-)

      • @rickie, at the hospicio de san jose in barili is a family tree of the family of don pedro cui (from his parents). that would probably be the most complete you can get of the family at the present. i saw it about 5 years ago while doing research in barili. i hope it is still on the board there. i answered a mrs j cui at the search page about carcar having at least 4 branches of cuis which i cannot establish the relation to each other but can only assume that they must all be somehow related to each other because they all came from cebu city and were mestizo sangley. one of the four branches is that of the brother of don pedro cui.

        • @vip…my relatives and i are working on that family tree and know who don pedro cuis parents are as well as his siblings…i think it was one of his siblings that relocated to carcar…i will try to locate the cuis from carcar and hopefully we can work backwards and find out how the cuis ended up in carcar…we are working on the geni site now but it has been down for the past couple of days…if you want i can give you a copy of what we have compiled so far…thanx very much and i must compliment you on your work…:-)

  19. hello po sa lahat ng taga carcar,mayron po sana akong gustong malaman tungkol po sa mga kamag-anak ko dyan sa carcar,ang mother ko po ay tubong carcar,ang mga magulang po nya ay sina,,sotero desipulo at filomina de la paz inoseta .ang mga anak po nya ay sina ,,lucia,lourdes,margarita at gavina, gusto ko lng po malaman kung may natitira pa kaming kamag-anak diyan sa carcar. mula po kc ng umalis ang nanay ko na si gavina diyan sa carcar ay d na po nakabalik sa carcar,,,gusto ko po nilang malaman na buhay pa ang kapatid nila wala lang po kc akong mapag kilanlan sa mga kamag-anak ng nanay ko.sana po matulungan ninyo ako na matagpuan ko ang mga kapatid ng nanay ko .maraming salamat po at mabuhay kayong lahat, .

    • victor, i consulted the 2010 list of voters of carcar and found no one listed with the family name desipulo, de la paz and inoseta–including possible variant spellings there may be of those surnames. when did your mother gavina leave carcar? better yet, when was she born?

  20. hi can anyone tell me about the cui’s in carcar. my grandfather is pio b. cui.

  26. my grand-grand father( Sexto Baran-Emnace) is from cebu..i dont think so if magkakilala sila ng mga lolo nyo..

  27. hello! can you please furnish me any results of the family tree of margarito regis married to arsenia alcordo. their siblings were: josefa, deogracias, lutgardo, rafael, ceferina and restituto all surnamed regis.

  28. I’ve been doing my roots for years now and recently found this website. I am in hopes you can help me with them. My name is Rena Empleo and my father was Florentino(Tony) Caballero Empleo and was born in Carcar, Cebu. His sisters were Felisa, Paz and Arcardia. His parents were Apolonio Empleo and Sugia Caballero. Can you tell me anything about them?

    • right now, i don’t have any record for apolonio. but i may have record of his parents, if you know the name of the parents of apolonio? or, maybe if you can tell me when he was born and any siblings of his. if you’re doing your roots, we can collaborate.

      • Yes his parents were Anastacio/Nicacio and Margarita Pangadlo. I think they had four sons, Juan,Maximo,Esteban and my grandfather Apolonio. three of the brothers married Caballero sisters. apolonio born in 1882 and died 1922 in a car accident.

        • so sorry for this more-than-a-year reply. i have no record for apolonio but if he is a son of anastacio-margarita (or rita) pangadlo, the second wife, apolonio’s eldest brother with margarita seems to be atanacio empleo, married to josefa alegado (see saturnino alegado family tree). atanacio is listed as a native of bohol but was an incumbent cabeza de barangay when he died in 1878, the son of juan empleo and magdalena canondo, naturally both natives of bohol. juan was the son of francisco regino

          • No worries. But here I am again. I have over 5900 Empleo;s on my website MyHeritage.com You are welcome to look at it. Im even more excited to investigate my fathers roots. I just wish someone was around to tell me. The relatives to day, either dont know or want something. I just want to know where and who my family roots are from. You just thru me for another loop. Atanacio empleo another brother. Here I found only 4 sons. Then you tell me, Anastacio has/had another wife because Pangadlo was second wife. who was the first and was their any children? this second wife was there any daughters? I haven’t even gotton there because there’s no records really. They lose their maiden name when they get married. If I am understanding this Juan Empleo/Magalena Canondo is the parents of Anastacio Empleo married to second wife Pangadlo who had 5 sons, not 4. Atanacio the oldest, married to Josefa Alegado. Please help…I really do appreciate it. Is there anyway that I can help the research?

  30. hello, my late father’s family is from can-asujan, carcar. my lolo’s name was roman larrobis and my lola’s name was maria pardillo larrobis. i read one or your blogs where you indicate the family’s race by m/S-m/E but the larrobis’ only had the place of origin. wud you happen to know from what country our family name originated?

    • dear maria cora, i included the classifications mS and mE (and a few others) to show the racial origins of a person or family. everybody else without the classification were indios (natives). a robis surname exists probably in spain and in south america. the larrobis family of carcar came from minglanilla. i would have loved to go after the old books of minglanilla to dig deeper into the family although the minglanilla parish started only some years after the claveria decree. before that and we would have been able to see whether the family already carried the surname.

    • Hi Maria,

      My lolo’s middle name is Pardillo. He is from Toledo Cebu city

      • hi, james. i don’t have any idea where my late grandma’s folks were from. all i know is that they were from can-asujan.

    • hi maria cora, I knew your lolo roman larrobis, he was the older brother of my lolo’s mother, francisca larrobis.. I think most of his siblings lived in cogon, carcar.. and they were Antonia Larrobis Aleonar, Quirina Larrobis Baring, Lorenzo Larrobis, Francisca Larrobis and Roman.. they are the children of Akoy Larrobis and his first wife (Maria) I think.. AKOY had 3 wives and have 13 children all in all.. some of them lived in can-asujan along with their cousin.. sons of tatay akoy’s siblings.. according to my lolo.. larrobis were originated in minglanilla, Cebu and Mindanao specifically in paradian and some parts in zamboanga… by the way I am the son of Asuncion Larrobis, daughter of Maximo Larrobis (son of Francisca Larrobis), sister fo Mano Roman… many said I am the living replica of mano roman because we are look-alike…

      • Hello Raul. Ang akong lolo has a middle name Pardillo. His family name is Basalo

      • Hi sir Raul Cabrera. I am Maria Cora’s Nephew. The son of her elder brother. Sir, I want to create a family tree for our family and would like to ask if you have documents/pictures or anything that may help us trace our oldest Larrobis Ancestor? I would really love your help sir.

  31. i see. i’m just curious because i look more of a mixed race than pure pinoy. in fact, when i went abroad people thot i was hispanic. i even have a negative blood rh. my blood type is 0 negative. rh negative blood is very common to people from europe. my grandfather looked like a foreigner also. i’ve been trying to locate people who have the same surname as mine especially in europe but i haven’t found any. i found some in the us but they are pinoys who migrated there.

    • your lolo roman looks more than a Spanish than a pinoy.. most of his siblings are meztizos and meztizas.. but my lolo emok’s (maximo) father was an American mechanic during the world war I.. so I have a blood of Spanish, American and pinoy…. Mano roman’s height was 5’10”.. shard nose, macho.. he was a shoe/ slippers maker and also a paradista.. the one who drive a tartanilla.. he loves to go sabongs every sunday..

  32. I’m wondering if there is any Aredidon here?

    • i’m just basing my answer on the commission on elections list of voters for the last elections and there is no aredidon. the nearest sounding would be arendon.

  33. hi po gusto ko lang po sana itanong kung buhay pa ang bunsong kapatid ng lola ko na si Narzisa Basmayor Alquizar siya ay lumaki sa CARCAR aloginsan cebu city sana po ay matulungan ninyo ako salamat po…

    • hi po ang pangalan po ng magulang ng lola ko ay sina maxima alquizar at gregorio vasmayor gusto ko lang po malaman kung may mga anak pa silang buhay pa salamat po

  34. mayroon din pong kaibigan ang lola ko sa carcar cebu ay pangalan po ay si vicitacion joshua sana po ipagbigay alam nyo po sa akin kung saan pwde matawagan o makita ang taong ito salamat po…

    • i may not have narcisa alquizar’s record. you did not give the name of your own grandmother and her date of birth. you will make it so much easier if you do.

  35. Good day vip
    Why dayagdal families. are not belong of the list of the families of carcaranon. they live there over a century… pls. explained to us or else i will file a case against this web site….. you are discriminating those families… we are waiting on your reply thankyou……

    • am i dealing with a sick person here? the dayagdal family can be found in the post origins of carcar families and in the post day- families of carcar. and you even wrote that you do not believe what i said. why don’t you write your own family history, then and don’t omit anybody in your family because they may file a case against you.

      • why don’t you go over all the families already posted here and go over each trying to find every dayagdal link you can find and piece together the family for yourself. because that’s that way i do everything, so why don’t you do it too. maybe you’ll enjoy it.

  36. my grandmother name is paula camoro abatayo.she was born on October 27,1808.In carcar Cebu.how do we know if she had a relative there that still alive.so we know our ancestry.thanks!




  39. May Zamora ba sa Carcar?

    • there are 15 zamora voters in carcar many in napo. the zamora family i know, who lives in poblacion 1 may have come from danao city.

His brothers and sisters were Sebastian, Elena, i have forgotten the 2 others but my tiya married a certain Largo in Toledo City. The Pepito is a very large clan in Liloan, neighboring municipalities

  40. Thanks VIP for the information

  41. hi vip. are the pardillos originally from carcar?

    • i think the pardillos were either from minglanilla or talisay but may have originated from san nicolas. but i’m not sure

      • Likely Mar . The Basalos abound in Talisay. My lola (mother side) Sismar lived in Minglanilla. Thnaks again.

  42. Thanks Mar.

  43. Im Amadeo Manalad. I just want to ask if the Quilo from Carcar is of chinese descent. I cant seem to trace our family tree.

    • hello. i’m sorry i failed to note down quilo. i thought they were just a transient family when i met the name. they’re not of chinese descent (mestizo sangley). know what, the name is usually spelled with an accent in the old books, thus, quiló. altho i think the pronunciation must have been more like quilô

  49. Hi, I hope active pa ang admin ani nga webpage kay murag last update sa thread was 2015 unya 2017 naman karon, mamasin nalang ko og naa ba gihapon motubag, ask ko if ma trace pa nako ang root sa akong lola, my lola’s name is Vicenta Flores unya iyahang giilisdan og Fiel ang iyahang lastname kay nakasala lagi siya, pero before that she married Padilla..originally taga carcar sya unya nilangyaw sa Mindanao Zamboanga del Sur, duna sya igsoon nga Yolalya ang name.

  50. Aloha from Hawaiʻi. I had grown up knowing my paternal grandfather is from Cebu, he is a Ricardo Quizon (sp?) Tangaro. I have just learned, however, my maternal great grandfather is also from Cebu. His obituary reads: Pablo Barakia. Mr. Barakia, a native of Carcar, Cebu, P.I… His sir name is also spelled Baraquita. He died Feb. 17, 1960 at the age of 63.

    I donʻt see this name, however, listed in the family names of Carcar list…I assume Iʻll have to dig deeper, and if so, would you mind providing some direction?
