The Carlos Clan: Tracing Our Roots


Lipi ng Carlos
Angkang Eladio-Manuela
Reunion 1980

I'm a proud Carlos and Marikenyo. Last January, I attended our clan's annual reunion held at the Marikina Convention Center. I have no recollection of any other family reunion I have attended until my father posted a photo of a 4-yr old me on the very first reunion of the Carlos Clan.




I was the only grandchild back then. This reunion was held at the vast property of our Tiya Leonor somewhere along Sumulong Highway (I think it is now Agnesville).




We have grown in numbers but our family tree has not been updated yet. Next year, it will be the Lucio Carlos family (where I belong) who will host the reunion. As early as now, we are already conceptualizing for the big event. Committees have been set up while I work on updating the clan's document.




"Ang ulat na ito ay isinagawa ni Pedro Carlos simula pa noong ika-27 ng Abril, taong 1980 sa tulong ng mga pamunuan ng angkan. Ang pinagkunan ng mga datos ay ang Kaka Biyo (Toribio Carlos)."

My father handed me this 15-page document listing the family members. Almost 35 years has passed. This is a tough assignment for me but with the help of surviving family members and the social media especially facebook, I'm sure I'll be able to update this.

Here's a little background of our clan.

Eladio Carlos is the son of Candido Carlos and Juana Santos. He married Manuela, the daughter of Nicomedes Santos and Benita Santiago. They were blessed with 13 children. They are:

Severo Carlos
Igmidio Carlos
Leon Carlos (married to Pelagia)
Alejandra Carlos
Lucio Carlos (married to Cayetana)
Martin Carlos (married to Maria; second wife Ipang)
Faustina Carlos
Felicisimo Carlos (married to Barcelisa)
Magdalena Carlos-Samson (married to Candido Samson)
Toribio Carlos (married to Loleng)
Marcela Carlos-Victorino (married to Juaning Victorino)
Felipe Carlos (married to Atang)
Emilio Carlos (married to Victoria)

We have relatives from San Roque, Calumpang, Cainta, Bulacan and Pampanga. If you are a Carlos, chances are we  are related. Let's reconnect!
