    To be specific, he has four children from his wife and a son from his previous relationship.

    Correct one of his great-great-grandfather’s given name from “Januario” to “Hilario”. And, correct Raymundo Magdaluyo’s maternal family name from “Jarabe” to “Rabé”.

    Ambrosio R. Santos’ “R.” stands for “Raquel”.
