I tried to find Rosalio’s birth record in Pinamungajan, Cebu and Malaybalay, Bukidnon on July 29, 1957, but none was found due to poor record management.

I see a bit of Spanish in him, perhaps a distant ancestry…?

He was 12 years old when his parents were separated after almost 20 years of marriage. So, I believe that his parents were married around 1970 in Kibawe, Bukidnon. Marriage records in Kibawe, Bukidnon is available online in FamilySearch. I am now currently searching for that year and place.

I have searched for 1970 and no marriage certificate of Rosalio Pacquiao and Dionisia Dapidran (or Silvestre) was found. I am now currently searching for 1971. Maybe, someone can help me in searching for 1969, 1968, 1972, 1973, and 1974? Thanks.
