Right now, the oldest record I’ve come across for a Parian mestizo Sangley who moved to Carcar is the 1832 Baptism of Hilario Juan, son of Mariano de la Cruz. After the Claveria decree implementation, the family took on the surname Sagolili.  The names of Mariano’s mother and grandparents can also be found in various other records in the church books.

The case of Mariano Sagolili has a similarity to the Noel, Villarosa, Mercado families of Carcar in that the first person was an illegitimate child.

In the 2010 Voters List, there are 86 voters bearing Sagolili (including 1 Sagulili), the 142d most numerous surname on the list.

  1. Hello Vip!
    I belong to the Sagolilis of Valladolid,Carcar, Cebu.
    My grandmother’s name is Magdalena Sagolili married to Manuel Orbeta Vasquez.
    My mother’s name is Elisea Sagolili Vasquez married
    to Candido “Eulogio” Dollera Pansit.
    Thank you so much for all your efforts. You made it easier for me to trace my roots especially now that only my Tia Fely Vasquez is left among her siblings. But with a failing memory, it’s not much help.
    Although when I was little, it was her whom I heard who mentioned of Juan Sagolili.

    • @zosima, pls send elisea’s date of birth because i need to attach her to my file. is the tia fely you mentioned teofila vasquez? are there any other brothers/sisters of your grandmother other than silvestra and teofila? and lastly, where in the family tree would juan sagolili belong?

  2. Hi Vip!

    Hilario Sagolili (1832-1902)pDn. Hilario Juan (in the Mariano Sagolili family tree. Maybe he was known as Juan rather than Hilario.
    My grandmother’s children:
    Teofilo S. Vasquez
    Silvestra S. Vasquez (married to Lapinid)
    Cesaria S. Vasquez (single)
    Camilo S. Vasquez (inday nena varga’s father)
    Elisea S. Vasquez (06/14/1914)
    Amando S. Vasquez (married to Alfar in Naga)
    Marcela S. Vasquez (married to Lanit)
    Felisa S. Vasquez (02/25/1924?)

    Although I’m not sure of the siblings’ ranking as to who’s older or younger among the middle children. But I know that Teofilo or Silvestra were oldest and Felisa is the youngest.

    More power to you!

    • silvestra (1905) and teofilo (1907) were the two eldest and the only ones i have record. hilario juan was identified in all records involving him after the claveria decree — as parent or grandparent– as hilario sagolili. but maybe the family called him juan. that would not be the first time such a case happened for carcar.

      • i just examined hilario re magdalena. when magdalena was married in 1905, hilario was no longer alive (d. 1902) but he would already have been 73 in 1905, old for the marriage of a child no? but the record in that marriage said magdalena was the daughter of hilario and eduvigis cabicab

    • Auntie,

      I have the latest and more accurate record for our family tree. Will visit you by week 1 this December after my comeback from Singapore.

      See you,

      Cliff Lañas

  3. Vip Severa Sagolili and Anacleto Galan Rayla has two daughters, namely; Felicisima and Agatona. Felicisima was married to Francisco Alesna (Pesing-Kikong of corner Gen. Luna & P. Gomez Sts., Carcar); Agatona was married to Pio Navares Rama. Agatona and Pio has eight children namely;
    Sergio m to Carmen Verano, Filomeno m to Maxima Alegado, Gonzala m to Tobias Cui Pagusara, Justino m to Juana Calomarde, Gabriel m to Gabriela Jumao-as, Bernardo m to Lily Ramoneda, Concordia m to Pedro Gonzales, & Felipe m to Elizabeth baricuatro.

    • thank you kaayo, jun. my sagolili, rama, rayla files go up one generation. there were 2 older daughters of anacleto-severa: victoriana (1885-1887) and maria (1887-1902). felicisima was born 1890 and agatona 1896. i’m hankering for more updates from you.

  4. Vip, Maria aka mana aya was a spinster and raised mama pesing and mama tona when nanang severa married the second time.

    • jun, this maria was born 1887 died 1902 half-a-month before Severa remarried to Pablo Alforque. still some months short of 15, she was identified as an escuela in her Burial record.

  5. Vip, this I know from mama saling that mana aya as a beata, taught catechism to who would be married in the catholic church. Confronted with these records, I am now at a lost as to who mana aya is. Maybe you could help me by finding the connection between Mana Soray Rayla and Anacleto.

    • Yes, there must be another Maria (Rayla?). Soray (Melchora Rayla-Alfafara?) was a daughter of Anacleto’s older brother, Benito Rayla. she was probably the youngest child because Benito died 2 years after she was born.

  6. Thank you Vip. Maria ( mana aya )could be a sister of Anacleto. And Maria the daughter, and the other sister of Mama tona and Mama Pesing were not mentioned to us because they died young.

  7. sus karon pjud ko ani kita….myra jud nka search kow…dghana jud diay sa mag sagolili dre sah carcar oi…

    • Hi, ako pud na shock mn ko pagkakita ko ani oi try mn lng to ako type sagolili family unya mao nani dayon ako nkita.

  8. ———Ambrosio Sagolili ( -1873)

    ———= Roberta Alcesto

    —-Placido Alesna
    =(1855) Roberta Alcesto Emvrado

    hello vip, i am confuse about the two roberta’s are they not in conflict???

  9. in her marriage record to placido alesna, roberta’s parents were given as pablo emvrado, dec. and leocadia alcesto. roberta alcesto’s parents were said to be mateo and maria arogoy. however, in the burial of ana sagolili in 1898, ana’s mother is said to be roberta embrado. but that could be an error, itself. roberta embrado had only one child in my records, sisenando alesna, who married ambrosio and the other roberta’s daughter ana. this could not have been the same roberta because if so, sisenando would have been his wife ana’s half-brother. no, the two are not in conflict; just think of it as a roberta alcesto and a roberta embrado, no problem with that.

    continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site.

    Normally the top web sites are full of garbage.

  15. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .
    net from PHP. I have always disliked the

    idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number

    of websites for about a year and am concerned about

    switching to another platform. I have heard very good
    things about Is

    there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be

    greatly appreciated!

  16. Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site

    before but after checking through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
