EARLY PHILIPPINE HISTORY

Article by edmondsallan

edmondsallan - Hi !!! . I see we have a few followers on the Philippine research . I hope we can bring more of the Philippine people into the " Family Tree Circle " If my " Boyo " ( son ) marries this very nice Filipino Girl , we could have ancestry, within our " Edmonds " ancestry in the future in the Philippines .or perhaps we already have ? ---- I see my companion, the cat with one tooth left ( my favourite Pet ) is giving me the - ' stare '!!!! . Excuse me for a second while I talk to - Her !! . " what do you want ? _ Alright I'll tell them -- " I'm back , She says she " Has licked her self clean , washed her face , scratched her hair into shape & wants me to get printing as she has been following the news on " Boyo " and the series ." What a cheeky cat !!! I'll have words with her later on .Ok ,Lets floor the pedal - & progress. !
To understand the "Filipino " People's ancestry , we need to know , how they all came about ,& who they are ? . It may interest you , on our " Maori " side - that the very earlier Maori's who came to NZ , have part of the " Five " ( 5 ) original - ab1b1b1 DNA, established over 50,000 years ago, -- as the " Filipino " people. ??? Now , don't jump to a conclusion that you have found the missing DNA LInk , cause you haven't. All it means is at some time ,way, way , way, back - your paths crossed , Boy met Girl --~*~. some thing occurred
( I am not spelling it out for you )- & they went on their merry way to different destinations . All tho I have researched the very early ancestral make up of them , we could be here a month tabulating it all . Their is already some well written research one can read if one wants to . I will start just before the Spanish invaded their country in the 1521 AD & the baptism of 800 natives of the Philippines & " Humabon " their leader . The Spanish recorded , they were a race of people with the same beliefs & artefacts , as the Malayan People ( We know that country as " Malay ) This could be true - as the ocean sea currents in that area. sweep up past " Borneo " on their West coast and goes further on to the Philippines before
dispersing . They dressed , behaved . and spoke a simular language as the, Malayans, they had encountered in their earlier travels. Some had Hindu & Moslem religious beliefs . Forty Odd years later , the Spanish started to trade & establish themselves in their country . Around the same time , The " Chinese " were already trading their . Gradually for over 300 years, we had these three main races blending together . Generally speaking , this how that beautiful hair coloring ( that dark black , which is so deep in colour , it has blueish shine to it ) which is common with the chinese women & men . The further we investigate this " Filipino " race the more we can see the harmony & blending of these Characteristics in their people .The women, when angry, have that fiery Spanish temper . It can just -explode _ then gone . They love to get together & dance . make music . The men drink hard & fast .They love to Gamble ( a chinese trait ) their woman hardly touch alcohol.They love to have a feast ( now that may bring their characteristics close to yours ) Today one of the larger southern Islands , named " Mindanao" is still muslim & fighting the catholics on their Island . The rest of the 7,000 Islands are nearly ( 90 percent Catholic .)
I think to assist any readers to understand all that I have written so far ( on this race of people ) I will need to take a genuine name from the Philippines and take us on the research trail in Asia & Southern Europe . Till then - regards edmondsallan
