There are several other Barangan branches/lines in my file that I have not been able to link up yet to this main/bigger branch of Marcelino/Juanillo.  As always, I go on with the hope that records that will do that will come my way.

A major discrepancy can be found below. Pedro Barangan, baptized 1887 had a notation on his baptismal record as having married Victorina Sedon—also in 1887. Either the year in the notation was just pure carelessness or this should have been annotated to an older Pedro Barangan, a grand-uncle in fact.

Another point with a potentially more substantial effect on the entire family however is the pronunciation of the name. Elsewhere in Northern Philippines, the surname is pronounced Ba-ra-ngan and as such was spelled with the ñ.  Carcar, on the other hand, pronounces it as Ba-rang-gan.  But a document dating 1863 of important personages of the town showed Juan Barangan, a cabeza de barangay (as was his son) signing his name with the “ñ”.  It may well be that back in those days, they did pronounce the name Ba-ra-ngan. But then again, 150 years may have also just laid the issue to rest–buried alive as it was.

In the 2010 Voters list for Carcar, there are 280 voters surnamed Barangan, the 10th most numerous surname in the list.

  1. Hello po to all Barangan. I don’t much of my genealogy but what I do know is that my great grandfather is Felipe barangan. i don’t know who are his siblings but their children are with us in Lallo, Cagayan. Maybe they came also from Ilocos Norte.

    • hi james, im from buguey cagayan, my father said felipe, is very close relatve to him,

    • Hello! James, my name is FRANK son of DANIEL who’s father was FELIPE claiming that they’re from barrio balatong san nicolas laoag ilocos norte I tried roaming around that area way back 5 yrs ago but i failed to find one maybe am just too shy to ask, nowadays am living here in canada with my children paul,frank jr. terrie. I’m one of the barangan’s trying to trace my bloodline so folks and fellow ka-BARANGAN’s hope to chat,meet you one day warm regards to everyone…..

      • I am Francisco “Frank” C Barangan my great grand father Igmidio and his only son Santiago Barangan and four daugthers populated Licab Nueva Ecija. His sons Victor Barangan and Roman were Medical doctor and dentist respectively survived the Death March along with General Santiago Barangan and Eustaquio Barangan. In the archives of San Nicolas showed the famiies of Barangan, Dawang, Casino and others emmigrated to Licab Nueva Ecija in the early 19th century. I met some members of Barangan Families thru my heritage Barangan Family Website which I am the Webmaster. I cannot put their names into the branch of Barangan Family due to lack of known names. I know the Barangan Family members came from single Family that originated from San Nicolas somewhere in the early 18th century. I met another branch of barangan family which came from there and they were relativies of gen. barangan. From Cebu families I met some close relatives in the office of the general during the time of Marcos. From informations I got the Barangan from Carcar Cebu made their family name into “Baranggan” to cebuano pronounciation.

        I would like to invite you to visit our ***BARANGAN FAMILY WEBSITE and how you will be incorporated to the main trunk of the family tree. Our numbers were only 500 members in which if all missing branches could be included would swelled to over a thousand. Thanks.

        • In addition to my blog I found out from Herman Barangan that his grand father Pacifico has other brothers like the one you mentioned Felipe Barangan from Cagayan who came from Barrio Balatong San Nicolas Ilocos Norte. Other unnamed brother went to Cebu, that could be Juan Barangan who died in Carcar in 1880. So to complete the family tree my great grandfather Igmidio has three sons namely Santiago Barangan from Nueva Ecija, Pacifico Barangan who stayed in San Nicolas I.N. and possibly Juan Barangan who went to Carcar Cebu. If anybody can confirm that Juan Barangan came from San Nicolas I. N. then our family is now complete. Their sisters were Simeona, Victoria, Alejandra and Irene that all stayed in Licab Nueva Ecija and populated the town.

      • Hello uncle Frank I think I know you. You have a twin siblings am I right? Is Ferdinand Barangan your brother? He is married to Febe Banayos Barangan?

        • Sorry James I have no twin siblings. Give me the names of your ancestor, maybe we can find something from there. We could be just the same age. me at 72 yrs old. See if you have any relation to Santiago, Pacifico and Juan Barangan. Thanks for knowing your roots.

      • Hey Frank you are my namesake. Looks like your grandfather Felipe from Cagayan came from Barrio Balatong San NIcolas Ilocos Norte just like my grandfather Santiago. Your father Daniel is my uncle and you are my second degree cousin. Corrections from above the brothers were Santiago, Pacifico, Felipe and could be Juan Barangan from Cebu. So a total of four brothers. If you could give me your Email address I can send you The Barangan Family Tree.

    • Hi I’m Virgilio Unabia Barangan son of Angel Renejane Barangan and my mother is Macaria Unabia Barangan i’m born in carcar Cebu and my parent from guadupe carcar Cebu my grand parent Eustaqio and maximina barangan now i’m leaving here in Palmera homes 2 taytay rizal

  2. hi james r u from cagayan d oro?my father is from carcar..acording to him my grandfather is from ilocos..

    • im a Ramon Barangan in Cebu Car car…im a APMR GLOBAL MASONIC PRES AGENCY search fb…

    • Jay Barangan I’m from cagayan Valley

      • san k sa cagayan aq cabayabasan, lallo, cagayan

  3. hi james and jay. I have not come across any older record in carcar of the barangan family of carcar ever coming from ilocos. It does not mean they were not, but there just is no record. what’s more, before the 1850 claveria decree the family was not carrying any surname, barangan or any other.

    the earliest reference of the family (not the surname) i have come across is a marriage in 1827 shown above (juan barangan to antonina barbac, when they were still known as juan albarado and antonia albordon, although the second names were not surnames. In the marriage and other records, juan’s father was given as having been born and a resident of carcar.

    it’s perfectly possible that subsequently, an ilocano barangan came to carcar. But he would not be related by blood to the carcar family. and there are other considerations, too long to go into here, why it would be hard to believe otherwise.

  4. ..ehehehe..i am too a barangan

  5. hi to all?im geraldine barangan from Davao City Phil.

      • Hi,Geraldine,correction,,it’s not your father’s grandfather but it’s our uncle ”Papa Exzequil Barangan”.He is the brother of my father Victor Barangan,your ”lolo victor”.As far as I knew,our family tree begin with Santiago Barangan married to Luisa Baran,from Anislagan,Carcar Cebu.Their children,I’m not really sure if I can name them all ,but i wil try my best to remember since I was a child ,when I saw or meet some of them.

        I remember,mama Ilay,probably one of the eldest,then Victor Barangan,Exzequil Barangan,Antonio Barangan,Maria barangan,Cleotelde Barangan,one brother of them went and live in Gingoog Mindanao,which the name i can;t remember,and one sister,also the name I cannot recall,resided in Alimplosan,Lalong Negros occ. I hope that some Barangans family who knew more about the missing names can fill it up, coz this is for us all really important to know our owned bloodlines.So mga pamangkin ,ask your parents,about this and I am looking forward to hearing from you all.Give my big hug to my brother Cres and also to your mama Mercy,I miss you all,,,,,,,,Auntie Deddie

    • barangan, barawidan, alegado may be surnames that were given out in ilocos as well as cebu. until we find a record linking the ilocano and visayas branches of these families, our guess now is that they were were not related. also, barawidan in carcar (barauidan in the old records) is spelled baraoidan in ilocos, as it is spelt in the catálogo.

    • hi joana!yes my father said he really know santiago of ilocos norte
