The Veluz Family
10.11.2006, 20:29
Filed under: Balid, Collantes, Veluz


The family name is derived from a Spanish phrase, “ve” meaning “to see” and “luz” meaning “light”. In the day when Filipinos were better versed in Spanish, the name was pronounced [ve’-luth].  However, its present-day pronounciation is [ve-luz’].

Our Line

Though not yet confirmed, the original home of our Veluz line is said to be Luisiana, Laguna. However, Del Gallego, Camarines Sur is more reliably considered to be the family’s ancestral home town.  Macario Veluz is the earliest known patriarch of our branch of the Veluz Clan.

Greetings! I’m just curious about my grandfather,Julian Flores Veluz. Just want to know if someone out there might have known him. I remember him refer to his father or was it his grandfather as “tandang eryong”. TY

Comment by samuel rey veluz

@sam, it’s been a while since we emailed. anyway, i just wanted to let you know that i have not forgotten — still looking for the elusive link. at any rate, perhaps you can create a profile on and build your family tree. the system will advise you if there are common names in other trees. neat functionality!

Comment by Mona

Comment by valerie veluz rodil

@valerie, it seems the veluz’s are widely dispersed in south luzon. =)

I happened to visit your website. My father, Bayani Veluz, 71, lives in Lumban, Laguna but is from Lucban, Quezon, originally. However, my (Rodante, a.k.a. Dante) family now lives here in Vallejo, CA, USA. May I know some updates on our clan? Thanks.

Comment by Dante Veluz

@dante, i still have no BAYANI VELUZ that matches your line. could you create your profile on so you can collaborate with me and others, as common links are entered? thanks!

Comment by Mona

I would like to know if someone knows my Grandfather. His name is Fidel Veluz from Lucban, Quezon. He was a music teacher in Lucban and had a marching band. Please contact me if you have more info.

Comment by Veluz

hi – unfortunately, i don’t have a FIDEL VELUZ in my database. will tag the name and let you know if it comes up in my research. thanks for visiting the site! could you please set up your family tree on once i find the common link, the system would tag me via email. that would really help. thanks!

Comment by Mona

“the original home of our Veluz line is said to be Luisiana, Laguna”. I agree to this… coz my dad is from luisiana laguna! i just do not know the name of my dad’s dad! my dad’s name is Salvador Veluz.

Comment by joy veluz

do you have ahmmmm Godofredo Veluz (my dad’s dad) and Basilio Veluz (my great grand dad) in your database?! They are both also from Luisiana, Laguna!

Comment by joy veluz

hi, joy. thanks for visiting the site! unfortunately, neither SALVADOR nor GODOFREDO nor BASILIO appear in my database. i’ll flag these names and let you know as soon as i establish a link. better still, could you please create a family tree on the system automatically advises me if there is a common link somewhere. i then send the collaboration request. nifty!

Comment by Mona

Hello I came across this site because I have been looking for my biological father, and my only clue is that his last name is Veluz. He and my mother Mila had a relationship and parted ways well before I was born. I just wanted to know who he really is. I know he was (or still is?) living in Cavite so I am assuming the Veluzes come from an old family. Please if anybody can provide any information I would be very greatful.

Comment by Marie B

How do I get password of serrano’s family tree, I was son of jesus Serrano. He is living in libon, albay. I am living here in cavite and I would like to know more about my ancestors.. coz I have no ideas about it!

Comment by jefferson de lara serrano

hi jefferson. i’m afraid i do not have JESUS SERRANO in my database. i’ll let you know if i run across his name in my research. in the meantime, could you put your ancestor tree in that way, the system can automatically advise when there is a match. thanks!

Comment by Mona

My lolo, is a member of the BANDA BANAHAW when Lucban is still under Tayabas provice. I need also info when the band was formed & if your grandfather Fidel Veluz is the band leader, need more pictures of them too. It seems like they are the very first marching band of Lucban.

Comment by ronee

hi ronee. i don’t have FIDEL VELUZ in my database yet; but please do keep me updated about your research on the banda banahaw. sounds very interesting — marching bands were rock stars back then! =)

Comment by Mona

Hi, I was just wondering if there’s anything you know about the late Rodolfo Veluz? He was a doctor, graduate of UST, and he’s from Quezon too, I think. He married another doctor, Generosa Modelo about fifty or so years ago. I hope you can help me.=)

Comment by reina

@reina, i don’t have a RODOLFO VELUZ on my database yet. will let you know if i find it in my research. it would be great if you can enter your family data on, and you can collaborate with us and others on-line as new information becomes available.

Comment by Mona

Hi Valerie. I also live in Cavite since 1989. But we came from Makati before that, I heard that there are Veluz family in Dasmarinas, Cavite and some are related to the Remullas, once professor in DLSU-D actually approached me and told me she is a relative, she is married to a Remulla but her maiden name is Veluz. I hope to get in touch. Thanks! -Jacelyn

Comment by Joal Veluz

Comment by Mona

wanna know about my veluz clan in calaburnay camarines norte. my great great grandafather is pedro veluz my grandfather is miguel veluz my father is deogracias gary veluz.. thank you

Comment by gilbert veluz

hi, gilbert. i do not have PEDRO, MIGUEL or DEOGRACIAS VELUZ in my database unfortunately. but before my husband’s uncle died, he shared a story about 3 excommunicated brothers from luisiana, laguna. to evade the authorites, they were supposed to have split up to cam sur, cam norte and cavite. our line is reputed to have descended from the brother who went to cam sur. if i make a new discovery, i will definitely post it here. 🙂 thanks for the visit!

p.s. my husband has a first cousin who shares your name. “)

Comment by Mona



thanks for the visit, ricardo. so far, i have not come across your name in my research, which is why your name is not on the database. if you wish, you can create your family tree on then invite me as a collaborator so i can review. if there are common names between your tree and mine, we can merge the trees. the only way to know your ancestors is to move back on generation at a time. good luck in your search!

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz



Hello,Mona I would like to know may be you came accross in your Data Base about my Grandfather name Aniceto Veluz he once told me that their Veluz(es) clan came from Queson they dispersed all over Luzon after the Volcano errufted in 1911, my grandfather and his brother name Pablo Veluz they end up in Dasmarinas(Cavite)and thats How Veluz(es)clan in Dasmarinas started then multiply. I’m very currious about my distance relatives where they came from and thrive.May be someone and somewhere out there might knew them.They could send a Text @ this # 510-593-8561, and I’m very thankful.THANKS AGAIN Rick Veluz,California,U.S.A.

Comment by Ricardo Veluz

@ric veluz, luisiana, laguna is where my husband’s branch comes from. the story we know of is that macario was excommunicated which is why he left. he settled in del gallego, camarines sur, which interestingly is right beside the border to quezon province. sam veluz (see earlier comment) is also from the veluz clan from cavite — perhaps you are related?

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

hello to you all…
I am one of the grandson of Veluz … My grandmother’s name was Filippina Veluz – They used to call her Piling and she was from Lucban, Quezon. My grandfather’s name was Crisanto Reodica and was from Luisiana, Laguna but I don’t know about the relatives from Cavite …
this is my email … I will ask my mom about it.
bye .. Gerard

Mona, I had searching for your e-address. Where are you now? My grandfather is Bernabe Veluz from Luisiana, Laguna. He did not have any sibling. I am so surprised to hear all the Veluzes around the country. I know for sure that all of them came from one root. So interesting. I am so glad that you have this information board . My email address is

Comment by Lolita V. hequibal

hi lolita. click my name of the upper left hand of the page and that links to my email address. the veluz’s are very likely related; but i have yet to establish my husband’s link to luisiana, laguna. i’ve heard of stories; but no documentary evidence yet. so far, i have only traced them until del gallego, camarines sur. 🙂

my grandfather name is Crisanto Reodica and my grandmother is Filippina Veluz Reodica. They call my grandmother as Piling. Our house is near Inanang Hina. The first street entering the town on the left side. My mother’s name is Emily and late brother is Virgilio (Vio), Zenaida ( Zeny ) Ederlinda ( Elen ) and the youngest is Antonietta ( Tony ). Vio died 5 years ago, Zeny lives in Canada, Elen and Tony lives in Holland and my Mom and me in Switzerland. But my grandmother was born in Lucban, Quezon.
Hope to hear you soon,

Comment by Gerard Majella Reodica Villamor

Hi Gerard. I can’t remember if I sent you an email already. Sorry if this is a duplicate.

Please create your family tree on and send me the URL of your profile. I would be able to compare data better on an automated platform. Thanks!

Comment by Mona

My grandfather is from Louisiana Laguna his name is Tomas Veluz . His dad’s name is Bernabe Veluz and I was told he was a katipunero and a statue of him can be seen in the plaza. One of his brother is still alive at 98 they call him amang deme . Majority of Veluz I know is in Southern California. Amama Tomas got married and settled in the town of Tayabas Quezon. He married Irine Abadilla and they have I think 8 children, two died followed by Efigenia, Carlos, Olor, Remedios, Antonio and Ella … He used to have the only vulcanizing shop in Tayabas .
