This website began as a commemorative project in honor of the 98th birthday of Encarnacion Janduquile
y Gumban vda de Himatay, and includes her family tree and a background on the Gumban of
Pavia, Iloilo. With her passing just a month shy of her 100th birthday, this website
is now a memorial to a beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who, through her long life, has touched many lives.
Some families know a great deal about their roots; others know very little. This site is an attempt to record what I've
learned about our family history. In these modern times, families tend to be scattered all over the country, if not the world.
One of the goals of this web site is to help our family stay connected even though we live far apart.
Most of this information was based on the own recollection of Encarnacion Janduquile y Gumban
vda de Himatay, as well as from talking to living relatives and from researching public records. In the course
of doing this research, I've discovered that I have many more relatives than I ever thought possible!
This is a work
in progress, so please contact me if you have any information that might help round out the picture.
