BALDIA - I am looking for all Baldia families in the Philippines. I am presently living in the USA for the past 30 years but my father Baldomero Baldia was supposedly born in Santo Tomas, Batangas, Philippines. Aside from my immediate family, I have never met any other Baldia, which led me to suspect that I might be descended from some Mexican or Spanish who came to the Philippines centuries ago. A certain Peter Baldia who lives in Vienna, Austria who is doing genealogical research of the Baldia family informed me that the Baldia family originated from the northern region of Italy at its border with Austria. There was a widespread war in Europe at around the 15th century wherein the Spanish prevailed and drafted a lot of the conquered and sent to other countries that they have colonized. According to a genealogy book that I have read, there is only 65 known Baldia families in the world and the great majority are in Austria and Germany. The few persons I have come across the internet are either German or Italian. I am trying to tract down a Baldia in California who might be a descendant of a long lost uncle who came to the US in the 30's. If there is any Baldia in the Philippines please contact Liveo B. Baldia at 1625 Franklin Street, Berwick, PA 18603. Thank you and God bless you. Please send any information to Liveo BALDIA. Posted 2 November 1999.

BARBA - Looking for BARBA, Marcelo born about 1870, probably in Spain but possibly in Ilocos Norte, Philippines. This man was my wife's great-grandfather and was evidently a Spanish don who lived in San Nicolas or Laoag, Ilocos Norte around the turn of the century (circa-1900). He had a child who was my wife's grandfather and who took his mother's surname, Nacino. The mother's name was Mira Nacino. I am doing research on our family history and currently focusing on my wife's ancestors. My wife's father came from San Nicolas (Barangay #12) in Ilocos Norte. He passed away in 1978 here in California. We learned quite a bit about my wife's family history when we were in Ilocos Norte in 1982 but would like to learn more. I hope that someone might be able to provide advice or perhaps direct me to someone who might be able to provide more information about Marcelo Barba (especially the connection to Spain; my wife's father always spoke of a daughter or sister of Marcelo Barba who was a famous concert pianist in Spain). Any information or advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much. Please send any information to Scott & Myra Nacino Erickson . Posted 31 August 1998.

DABLO - My father's side of the family is from Cebu and Mindanao. My grandfather's name is Marcelo B. DABLO.

He migrated all the way to Asia and settled in the Philippines to marry a local. But this is the only information that I have gathered so far.

I have asked our older family members but unfortunately the very last person that could answer some of my questions is very ill. I get bits and pieces of information here and there but there are voids and nulls. An example is that the origin of our surname "Corcoro" came from a European descent. According to what I have gathered so far is that the word "Coro" was a musical instrument and that the "Cor" is a group of musicians like "Corps". I was told that one of its members escaping from persecution (He is a Jew), left Europe in search for more peaceful place. He migrated all the way to Asia and settled in the Philippines to marry a local. But this is the only information that I have gathered so far. I wanted to get more information on all of the above mentioned surnames; i.e. where did they originated, moved to, etc... I know that all of these surnames are from the Ilocos region. I also know that a Corcoro surname exist or existed in Nueva Ecija, a cousin of my Dad but never really met those relatives.
