Cornezo Ambe and Fernanda Bulasa

I’m still iterating through my wife’s ancestors, in numerical order. For each ancestor I list what I know, what I can find online, and what I should do next. Today I looked at numbers 6 and 7, Cornezo Ambe and Fernanda Bulasa. Cornezo and Fernanda are buried in Capoocan, and last year, while we were in the Philippines, we were able to visit their grave. The inscription on the grave reads: “In memory of Cornezo G. Ambe born Sept. 9 1902 died Dec. 14 1988 Fernanda B. Ambe born Jan. 26 1906 died Feb. 19 1978 Family...

A tombstone

When we were in the Philippines last year we passed by the new cemetery of Capoocan (prov. Leyte, the Philippines), where my wife’s maternal grandparents are buried. Unfortunately our visit was cut short by a tropical shower, but I still managed to take a few photos. Apparently my grandparents i.l. were buried elsewhere before, but they (and many others) were reburied when this cemetery opened.
