 Post subject: Serra Family Connection.
Unread postPosted: Tue Mar 25, 2008 9:54 pm 
I have heard there are many with the name Serra in Tago and Tandag. Has anyone heard of a connection to Father Junipero Serra, the founder of the California missions? He was from Mallorca.

hi joe. welcome to tagosds.org.

i have a friend in Tandag, Plong-plong, whose real name is Manolo Junipero P. Serra. i don't know Plong's lineage but his parents must have named him after Fr. Junipero Serra. Plong has Spanish blood and he and his siblings look like one, what with their fair skin.

I'm not sure if Plong's great, great grandparents came from Mallorca. What i'm sure of is that the Serra Family is a very prominent clan, one that has produced politicians and captains of the local industry. In fact Surigao del Sur's present governor, Hon. Vicente T. Pimentel Jr., is a Serra scion and a third generation governor, after his mother and his maternal grandmother---Dona Adela Serra Ty---who was the clan's matriarch until her death in the 80s.

Very interesting. In my research of my family trees, although I haven't found out what part of Spain my ancestors came from,
I have found out some Filipinos also have Mexican blood (via the Acapulco Galleon).
