  1. Hi. It’s been awhile since the last post. Anyway, I would like to inform our Javellana clan that my mother, Josefina Papas Javellana, the last surviving daughter of Jose Hinolan Javellana, passed away last December 21, 2017 here in Quezon City. Her ashes are now at my cousin Luz Brandares’ family mausoleum in Heaven’s Gate Memorial Garden in Antipolo, Rizal. She was 86 years old.

    Here’s looking forward to a prosperous and peaceful 2019 for our Javellana clan! Take care everyone!

  3. Hello! My name is Ami. I am the great granddaughter of Dr. Tranquilino Gonzalez and Paz Javellana through my mother’s side (her maiden name is Gonzalez.)

    I was wondering if you might have come across any information about Lola Paz in your research on the Javellanas. I grew up outside PH and am very curious to find out if I can trace my family tree further back on that side.

    Thank you!

  4. Hi not sure if i can help u but maybe you can help me? I’m also a Grecia. My grandfather is Gaudencio Grecia who was from Iloilo and moved to Tacurong, Sultan Kudarat around 1920’s (not sure).

Then they had 4 children after- one is my dad Gaudencio Ordinario Grecia Jr. Please let me know your thoughts?

  12. My name is Rebecca Gargantiel Ignacio- Sarmiento. Married to Jimmy Siason Sarmiento of Silay.

    My grandmother is Socorro Grecia Golez, daughter of Maximina Javellana Grecia who married Juan Golez. My great grandmother is Narcisa Javellana ‘oyang Inar’ as my mother calls her.

    Socorro Grecia Golez married Telesforo Garcia Gargantiel from Binalbagan and settled in Bayawan City, Neg Or. where Telesforo was the mayor after the war. When Socorro died of TB, my grandfather married her elder sister Maria Grecia Golez.

    I’m glad I found this site so now I can piece together the connections of the relatives I met. It’s sad to hear that tito Edison Sanz passed away last year.

    Here are the decendants of Maximina Javellana Grecia & Juan Golez
    1. Socorro Grecia Golez . Married Telesforo Garcia Gargantiel and had 6 children:
    1.1 Ceasar Golez Gargantiel. Never returned from WWII
    1.2 Remedios Golez Gargantiel married Felix Gaudiel Sr. from Ilog. They have 4 children, Remo, Refe, Lorna & Rene.
    1.3 Consolacion Golez Gargantiel. Married Roberto Jimenez Ignacio from Cadiz. They have 4 children, Rebecca, Susan Roberto Jr. and Maricar.
    1.4 Igmedio Golez Gargantiel married Ester Rivas from Tigbauan. they have 3 children. Telesforo ‘Bingboy’ Jr, Cezar, Marissa
    1.5 Serafin Golez Gargantiel married Rhodora Tronco from Tigbauan. They have 5 children, Williabel ‘Bebett’, Serafin Jr.,Ingrid,Vera-lyn Sheila
    1.6 Rodolfo Golez Gargantiel married Teresita Arcenas Tirol form Capiz. They have 4 children, Rudolph, Grace, Melanie & Gary.

    2. Maria Grecia Golez. Married Telesforo Garcia Gargantiel. No children
    3. Pedro Grecia Golez “tatay Indo”
    4. Emilio Grecia Golez ” tatay Iming”
    5. Agapito Grecia Golez ” tatay Pito”
    6. Albina Grecia Golez “nanay Albin”
    7. Filomino Grecia Golez
    8. Paulina Grecia Golez

    There’s more to uncover with the siblings of my grandmother Socorro. The information was provided to me by my mother years ago but it was kept in storage for years. Not until my auntie Remedios turned 90 seven years ago that I realized i had to trace our roots and pass on the family history to the next generation.

    sad to say my father already died way back 2007 and we never met his relatives neither his parents nor his siblings.. hope that you would help us find them.. Thank you and Godbless you!


  23. Just want to say thank you for this beautiful website! I’ve been trying to find my ancestors through and this took me by surprise. FYI: I’m the 3rd-great-granddaughter of Inocencia Javellana through her daughter Francisca Jamora. Thank you so much for this! Keep up the good work 🙂

  24. Hi! I’m a mother of 2 precious Javellanas but unfortunately my husband(Kim Kristoffer Javellana) doesn’t have even the slightest idea where his family originated. It’s a sad thing that whenever my kids would ask about their dad’s family, i always feel sorry towards them. For all i know is that my husband was born in Jaro, Iloilo City to the late Elpidio Javellana and Luz Dagami-Javellana(second wife). My husband is an officer on board(seaman) and i am working in a hospital as a Senior Admin Officer here in Tacloban. In fact, we are the only Javellana here, so i must say. For the entire years i spent in the hospital where i work, i get to know a lot of doctors and upon hearing my surname they would ask me” Javellana from Jaro, iloilo?”, then i simply reply “Yes, my husband”. It’s my way of giving them a hint not to ask any more questions.’Coz honestly, i don’t really know much about my husband’s family, whether he still has brothers or sisters out there or anything. Just sharing. i merely hate the thought of my kids being deprived of facts about their family roots and history. So, i’m so grateful to have seen this blog…and i do hope this would probably put an end to my long-time search. God bless and more power!

  25. It is with deep sadness that we announce the demise last night of Leticia Tarrosa vda. de Javellana, widow of former Guimaras Gov. Abelardo Javellana. She was 93. She is survived by her children Ofelia, Pilar, Cynthia, Pacita, (†) Jerry and Kiddy, in-laws, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her body will lie in state starting tonight at the St. Joseph the Worker Parish Mortuary in Jaro and will be transferred to the family residence in East Valencia (Mantangingi), Buenavista, Guimaras on Friday. Interment will be on March 31, 2014. We request the pious reader to pray for the eternal repose of her soul. Lola Leting, you will forever be missed!

  26. Our deep sympathy to your loss and to our other relatives…

  28. Hafa adai, my name is Joseph Grecia and I am from Guam. My father is Cesar Armada Grecia from Jaro, Iloilo. My father migrated to Guam from Iloilo right after World War II. I have family still in Jaro and Lapaz. I want to know more about my fathers side of the family, the Grecia’s and I hope to connect with more family, no matter how far apart we are.

  29. do you have any knowledge of the desendants of descalsota javellana?

  30. Hi Sienna, your grandfather was Armando Sacramento who married Mely Jaranilla, daughter of Aurora Javellana and Cornelio Jaranilla Sr. Aurora is the daughter of Melquiades Javellana and the granddaughter of Don Cristino Javellana.

  31. Hi!!! I’m doing a family project and this is my family!!! I was wondering why somewhere along the line my last name was changed to Sacramento?

  32. My condolences, there’s great purpose in this life and it has great impact of our eternal existence. Though we did not meet personally we are all one great family, this mortal life is now a part of eternity. He just passed on to the other side of the veil. All are saved through the atonement of Jesus Christ.

  33. PEDRO APOLLO PANES joined his Creator on 6 May 2012 after a long fight with Cancer at the Central DuPage Hospital, Winfield, Illinois.

  35. Hi! The paragraph “I could not ascertain whether Cerilo Punzalan and Consolacion Javellana ever had children…” was written on 25 February 2009 when I started my genealogical research. Data started coming in since then and I was able to fill up the holes. There is a succeeding article dated August 29, 2011 updating the first one. Happy New Year!
