Hello! I'm Looking for my uncles Enrique and Pedro Fernando or Enrique and Pedro Timbol Yap( Maybe born between the year 1916 or 1919. Accdg to an informant they are now in Sheyi, Shishan,Nanan, Quanchou, Fujian, China .
Based on the marriage contract of my grand father,Felipe Yap also known as Felipe Fernando.
His parents were Yap Tauco a chinese who migrated in Guagua, Pampanga, Philippines and Joaquina Fernando of Angat, Bulacan, Philippines. So I assumed that my grandfather adopted the surname of her mother, Joaquina Fernando.
My grandfather Felipe Yap married my grandmother, Marta Timbol of San Fernando, Pampanga. Both migrated to Cotabato, Philippines.
They had children named: Pedro, Enrique, Pacifico (deceased), Jose(deceased), Juanito (was born last August 7, 1924), Dominador (deceased), and Mercedes.
Sometime in the late 1928 up to 1930 the whole family of my grandfather Felipe Yap had a vacation in China.My grandmother discovered that my grandfather had a chinese wife and got into trouble with the chinese wife. Said family problems lead to their separation. My grandmother brought back to the Philippines her five children living behind Enrique and Pedro in China.Since then both never returned to the Philippines.
My father lost communications with the Fernando and Yap relatives of Felipe Yap.
