Now Playing: The Castillo Connection
Topic: More Banzon relations


This is Marietta Banzon Castillo. I am the eldest grandaughter of Don Manuel Banzon of Balanga, Bataan.  My father is Col. Jose V.H. Banzon and my mother is Maria Nicolas.  My father was the Philippine Military Attache in Saigon, Vietnam and spent his 25 years career in Southeast Asia.

 I have three brothers...Rolando, Angelo and Victor.

I am seventy years old, married to Mario Castillo a chemical engineer UP grad , and have two children, Anna and Mark and had one grandson from each of them Alex and Jarod.

Ambassador Cesar Banzon Bautista  was our ninong sa kasal  and also he was Mario's  boss at Philippine refining Company  before we migrated in 1968 to the USA.  Reading one of the blogs caught my attention when his name was mentioned. On our last trip to the Philippines in 2012 as Mario was in the Balik Scientist program, Mario got in touch with him.

 Hopefully I could generate some interest from other Banzons to communicate with me.

Banzon Family In Cebu
Topic: More Banzon relations

I am doing some family research on our roots in the Philippines.  My grandfather was from Danao, Cebu and his brother, Eritiqueno Nunez was married to Laureana Banzon.  They lived in Denao and had five children, Eritiqueno Jr, Jesus, Eunice, Alma and Wilfredo.  She and Eritiqueno were married in the mid to late 1930's I believe. 

Any information on Laureana's family would be appreciated!

Don Manuel Banzon's photo on Flickr

Hello everyone

Just a note to say sorry for the link below (to access Don Manuel's picture when he was young) being inaccessible. I immediately signed up for an account with Flickr (you have to sign up for a yahoo one too) and emailed Victor Ancheta, who is the proprietor of that photo, for permission to have a copy. As soon as I can and if I'm able, I'll post it to the photo gallery with Victor's approval.

Me again! Your friendly webmaster!

Just wanted to talk about Facebook. If you're on Facebook (or just join, if you want) and didn't know about it yet, there's a private, invited/approved members only group for all Banzons. Meet yet more people who may be your 1st, 2nd, cousins. First go to the "groups" tab. In the search box, type "banzon", and choose the "Banzon Family" group, usually the first on the list. Enjoy! (Not that I'm giving you a recipe or something!!!)

Lisa is the website

By the way, this group in FB has about 10 members currently. You're welcome to join!
