In the past several years, working in a diverse population, I have witnessed the ongoing erosion of traditional and cultural values. This experience has lead me to attempt to trace my roots to where I came from. I know my Euro-American ancestors and have the results reaching back to the 1100′s, with an educated guess of those roots prior to that date. Now, the other side of my family originated from the Philippines. I am beginning my search in the Bicol Region and Legazpi City...
