About Genealogical Project
This originally was an exercise to list as many of the family clans in the City of Tanjay, Negros 
Oriental, Philippines, which is our hometown, where many families are said to be inter related. Over
time, a database was built up from sources such as individual family trees volunteered to us, 
research, interviews, old records, and the internet. All these data was encoded into the database 
residing in my computer using the FTM software, which already had the extensive family trees of my 
forebears from Luzon. Almost 2 years ago, the database was uploaded and posted on this website to 
make it available to all who visit the site. For simplicity, it is devoid of all notes, events,
stories, anniversaries, etc. 

The more interesting aspect of this project is not the creation of various family trees, but to find
the linkages between family clans, and individuals, by blood line and marriage. 

For example, using the "Relationship" tool (under "People" menu), one can trace how two former 
politicians Cornelio Villareal and Aguedo Agbayani are linked to each other (not related). Or, how 
either of them is linked to former president Fidel Ramos. Other well-known political, business and
show-biz figures include rebel Leon Kilat AKA Pantaleon Villegas, Greggy Araneta, Emilio Aguinaldo,
Robert Arevalo, Robert Jaworski, the Luna brothers, Gloria Macapagal, Fernando Poe, Quentin Paredes,
etc, or for that matter, all of the presidents of the Philippines.

This was an attempt to trace and prove correct a popular blog (click on second useful link below)
that states most political clans and business empires in the country are all inter-related. Ironic
examples are the close links between dictator Ferdinand Marcos & challenger Benigno Aquino and then
national hero Jose Rizal & martial law strongman Fabian Ver. 

Most of these mentioned have just a tenuous link to the bulk of the individuals in the database,
while others are part of a well-developed family tree. 

Recently encoded are selected data from the open source Geni website where a series of avid
genealogists had mapped out a large segment of European royalty. So now there is a direct bloodline
between King Juan I of Spain born 1358 with the Ponce de Leons of Palawan, and thence, by linkages,
to the rest of the other persons in the database. Along the way, the royal lineage passes through a
few other kings and the emperor Ferdinand II of the Holy Roman Empire. 

Many linking names are therefore descriptive, such as "NenaPa Syquia". Another easy approach to view
linkages is to successively click on various individual's "Tree" and then drag their boxes around to
view the entire field of inter-relations.

Where there is a clan of interest, the forebears are traced to a "ROOT". In this database, there are
over 100 roots, which can be displayed as true family trees. To best explore the extent of the 
database, click "R" in the alphabet of names, click on "ROOT", and choose and click any family name.
Then click on "Descendants" option. That particular family tree will be shown. One doesn't have to
start from a root. Any individual's family tree can be displayed, so long as he/she has descendants.
To print it out in a more comprehensive format, go to "Reports".  Understandably, some family trees
are merely skeletal. Many individuals could find themselves listed under different family trees, as
the branches do overlap.

Most sites devote their data to just one family tree. This site is like a "pine forest" of family 
trees, each with a distinct top or apex indicating the fellow who started it all, which I call the 
"root", with his offspring branching downwards to the ever-widening base, and inter lapping with 
adjacent trees by marriage. This may sound like an oxymoron, but this is the better visualization 
method. Conventional wisdom shows the root as located below with branches growing upwards.

It is inevitable that there are errors, especially in the older generations where linkages amongst 
similar family names may be conjectural. Or, the data given to us was wrong to start with.

A notable feature is that each individual has been given a birth year, which in most cases, is an 
educated guess ("guestimate") using date interpolation (based on logical assumptions of marriage and
child-bearing age and spacing), as indicated by the prefix "Abt" (about) before the date. Where an
exact year is known, estimated birth years of siblings, parents, and children are adjusted 
accordingly. However, after uploading into this website, estimated years appear without the "Abt" 
prefix, except in the "Detailed Listing", or in the "Family View". Please note this distinction.

Whatever the case may be, the guestimated birth years could be significantly off, since the order of
birth of siblings may not be correct, and some siblings may be missing.

If you want to be included in the database, you first have to find an individual whom you know is a 
relative, then send us the data on how you are related, including full names and birth years, and
include data of your immediate family.

Individuals who happen to be webmasters of their particular family tree should take note that the 
data herein cannot be as authoritative or complete as theirs. Many of the sources herein are from 
public domain blogs on the internet.

We wish to acknowledge the invaluable help of so many relatives, friends and genealogical hobbyists 
in helping make this database. The listing will be too long to mention. However, the Tanjay website 
has selected Family Trees shown in detail that have introductions and acknowledgments.     

We enjoin the clan members to call our attention to any errors/updates/additions/deletions that they
wish to make.

In the meantime, this site will keep evolving with more additions, and selected ID photos. Most of 
the pictures are blow-ups of recent candid shots, or from scans of old pictures, Facebook, etc. If 
you don't like your picture, let us know, and/or sent us your choice for reposting. 

As a public service, we would be glad to email more data generated from the original software to 
those interested members. For other features of the database, please go to the Tanjay website:

Getting Around
There are several ways to browse the family tree. The Tree View graphically shows the relationship of selected person to their kin. The Family View shows the person you have selected in the center, with his/her photo on the left and notes on the right. Above are the father and mother and below are the children. The Ancestor Chart shows the person you have selected in the left, with the photograph above and children below. On the right are the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. The Descendant Chart shows the person you have selected in the left, with the photograph and parents below. On the right are the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Do you know who your second cousins are? Try the Kinship Relationships Tool. Your site can generate various Reports for each name in your family tree. You can select a name from the list on the top-right menu bar.

In addition to the charts and reports you have Photo Albums, the Events list and the Relationships tool. Family photographs are organized in the Photo Index. Each Album's photographs are accompanied by a caption. To enlarge a photograph just click on it. Keep up with the family birthdays and anniversaries in the Events list. Birthdays and Anniversaries of living persons are listed by month. Want to know how you are related to anybody ? Check out the Relationships tool.
