Re: the San Diego family name. I was told Obando until 1754 was part of Polo (now Valenzuela). Independent since 1623, Polo’s patron is San Diego de Alcala. Polo even predates San Diego, California.

that’s interesting, vip. the church records i have found most helpful are from the san pascual baylon parish. if i were to look for ROQUE SAN DIEGO’s records or that of his parents, polo would be a good alternative target. good stuff!

Hi Mona, Alright I just info u that my grandfather Liberato Mendoza San Diego was born in Bunsuran, Pandi, Bulacan in Jan 06, 1891. He’s the son of Pedro San Diego & Ana Mendoza. They worked as fishponds in Bulacan, Malabon & Pampanga. Let’s know i will find Pedro’s middle name. Pedro Yap San Diego or other ?

Thank you very much, Arnel

Hi Arnel. It would be difficult to assume Pedro is also from the Yap family (especially since the Yap’s are based in Cebu). I did a quick search on and found multiple Pedro’s — see here: I hope this points you in the right direction.

Hello Mona,

My name is Afredo San Diego Feliciano and I believe that I’m related and part of the San Diego angkan. My Grandfather is Francisco San Diego from Malolos, Bulacan got married to Eduvieges Cruz and had one daughter, Amelia Cruz San Diego (my mother). Amelia was married to Rodolfo Mateo Feliciano and had 4 siblings (Rowena, Rose, Racquel, & me). Hopefully, this information will help me locate my relatives on my mother’s side.

Hi Alfredo! My mom was a San Diego as well! If you have the birth/marriage/death dates of your grandparents, you would be able to make your own research at any Family History Center of the Church of the Latter Day Saints. 🙂

Hi Mona, My older brother rady san diego went to the office of pandi cementery (bulacan) to check the graves of our great grand father Pedro A San Diego ( maybe middle name alverto) and great grand mother ana mendoza san diego but there officers said there no more after 1924 because new lawn. They should have their records of the graves to show us.

Someone took their bodies moved to another place ?

Please email me ( if find their bodies or their graves. Thanks much, Arnel Cruz San Diego (deaf)
