4 Generations

The starting persons of the two lines of the family were both said to be from Bohol.  Faustino was even said to have been born in Bohol and so was Tomacino below. And since there are these two starting persons, so their respective parents Pedro and Dominga may have been siblings. But there has been no record found yet to confirm this or other possibilities. And we are running short of records for that because it would probably take the burial records for Pedro or Faustino or Dominga or Tomacino that may show whether Pedro and Dominga had the same parents.

The first records to already bear the surname were sometimes Tangarorang and sometimes Tangarucan (which is what appears in the Catalogo). When my great-grandfather Pedro Aleonar remarried in Barili in 1884, he was described as the viudo (widower) of  Anacleta Tangarucan in the Barili marriage book.  Since Pedro was also an escribiente in Carcar, it may have been he who volunteered the spelling, or else he could easily have offered the correction.  Moreover, where did the Barili clerk get the name but most probably from Pedro himself, although Barili also had a line that was carrying Tangarucan but the latter day predominance of the first spelling may have also resulted in that Barili line to change its spelling. I did not take notes, mea culpa, of that Barili branch, and it’s possible the members thereof also appear in this Carcar reconstruction.

In the 2010 Voters list for Carcar, there are 111 voters surnamed Tangarorang, the 84th most numerous surname in the list.

  3. Hello:
    Are there any origin-connection between the sir names Tangarorang and Tangaro? In other words, does one derive from the other, or are do they have two distinct origins?

    Appreciate tremendously your detailed work. Good health to you and your team (that is if you have a team working with you).


    • the two are apparently distinct from each other, although both have bohol origins. but believe it or not, while tangaro is found in the catálogo de apellidos of the claveria decree, i have not found tangarorang at all. there is however a tangarucan found in the catálogo and it was sometimes used in the records for the tangarorang lines. for instance, in the 1884 marriage record in barili my great-grandfather pedro aleonar was recorded as a viudo of anacleta tangarucan. pedro was a scribe, cabeza de barangay and later secretario municipal of carcar, so he might know something about the tangarucan name or else he himself would have corrected that, wouldn’t he?

      • Hi I’m interested in your caballero lineage I am Ann caballero my father is a Cebuano here’s my cel 09066336970
