Bayombong records

   April 2, 2008
Objective: To find aditional information about the family of Mauricio Balunsat around Solano, Nueva Viscaya, Philippines.
Facts Known: In previous research we found the children of Mauricio Balunsat living in Solano, but no information was found about him.
Research Results:
In a brief history of Solano the following facts were found:
Solano populated in 1767 by the Spanish Dominican Father Alejandro Vidal.
Solano was called Lumabang up to 1860 when it became a town and was called Solano, after one of the Generals that conquered Luzon.
While it was called Lumabang it was only a barrio of Bayombong.
The area was inhabited by the Gaddags tribe and later in the 1800′s the Iloco tribe moved in.


With this information and the findings from the previous search, we searched the parish records of Bayombong. The baptism register starts in 1816, with the second book, which means the first book has been lost.   The marriage registers starts in 1848, which is the third book. Apparently the first two books have been lost. The death register starts in 1852, also the third book.
In Bayombong we found the children of Mauricio Balunsat being baptized starting in 1836 as follows:
1. Miguel Balunsat born, 3 Jan 1852
2. Francisco Balunsat born, 2 Jun 1836
3. Jacinto Balunsat born, 6 Jul 1839
4. Domingo Balunsat born, 27 Mar 1842
5. Miguel Balunsat born, 23 Jan 1846
6. Francisca Balunsat born, 4 Dec 1848
7. Margarita Balunsat born, 9 Jun 1855
8. Catalina Balunsat born,17 Sep 1857
9. Maria Balunsat born, 21 Jan 1860
10. Mariano Balunsat born, 25 May 1862
Since the marriage register starts in 1848, I was not able to look for the marriage of Mauricio and Rosa, who married probably in 1835.
The baptism entries did not say the name of the grandparents, so there is no way to documents who the parents of Mauricio are.
Mauricio died on April 25, 1865 in Bayombong, and his death entry only says he was married to Rosa Panganiban.
There was another Balunsat family, Gregorio Balunsat and Ines Duiaum, whose children were born from 1816 to 1837, and I thought they would be the parents of Mauricio, but I did not find his baptism entry and since this couple had children for 21 years, they might not be his parents.
Another Balunsat family I found was that of Andres Balunsat and Catalina Talibungan, who seem to have had their last child in 1817, named Juan.   Since Mauricio seems to have been born about 1814, this couple could be his parents. Gregorio Balunsat could also be their son, since they named one of their sons Andres, and Gregorio had bo have been born about 1790.
One of Mauricio=s daughter was named Catalina, so that might be another clue that links Mauricio as the son of Andres Balunsat.
So far this is the information we have on Mauricio Balunsat=s descendants:

While searching the Baptism register, I also found the baptism of Rosa Panganiban, who was born on July 2, 1819, the daughter of Domingo Panganibam and Dominga Otlan.

Research in Solano

Finished researching the records at Parish of San Luis, found some interesting information


March 2, 2008

Objective: To find information about the Balunsat families living in Solano, Nueva Vizcaya, Philippines.

Facts Known: The family of Mauricio Balunsat and Rosa Panganiban was established in Solano in the late 1800’s.

Research Results:

The parish registers of the church of San Luis, in Solano were searched. These registers start in 1875 for the baptism and death registers, but the marriage registers starts in

The registers were search starting with the first page and ending in the mid 1900’s. The first book of baptism available was the Second Register, so it is obvious that the church was active prior to 1875 and the first book is missing.

The following entries were found:

Vicente Balunzat married to Elena Bariuan were the parents of:
Vicente, born February 5, 1879.

These entries did not give the names of the grandparents. It is obvious that Vicente and Elena married before 1877.

In the Death Register the entry for Vicente Balunzat was found dated February 10, 1879g.

Gaspar Balunzat married to Maria Manalu were the parents of:

Margarita, born October 18, 1877~
Luis, born October 10, 1879~
Veronica, born March 21, 1882

In the Death register the entry for Margarita was found dated, July 23, 1878~. Gaspar’s death entry was also found dated June 4, 1883. He was 28 years old.

The entry for Veronima gave the names of the grandparents, so we know that Gaspar was the son of Torcuato Balunzat and Paula Balalat.

Since Vicente named one of his children Torcuato, I believe he was the brother of Gaspar.

Another death entry found that might have been of a sister of Vicente and Gaspar was that of Rosa Balunzat, married to Valentin Dumelo. She was 40 years old and died on November 20, 1883g.

Miguel Balunsat married to Fermina Dangulan were the parents of:

2Par. S. Luis, L2 F148v, Doe # 2

3Par. S. Luis, L2 F62, Doe # 3

4Par. S. Luis, L2 F67v, Doe # 4

5Par. S. Luis, L2 F173v, Doe # 5

6Par. S. Luis, L2 F309v, Doe #6

7Par. S. Luis, L2 F52, Doe # 7

8Par. S. Luis, L2 F219, Doe # 8

9Par. S. Luis, L2 F257, Doe # 9

Rosa Demetria, born June 20, 1891
Angel Geronimo Mauricio, born September 30, 1894

These baptism entries gave the names of the grandparents, so we know that Miguel Balunsat was the son of Mauricio Balunsat and Rosa Panganiban. Fermina was the daughter of Vicente Danguilan and Josefa Logan. The entry for Rosa’s baptism also mentions that they are Indians of the town. The entry for Angel says they are living in Baraguay no. 4 of Don Aniceto Piggangay

There was available a census of the Province of Nueva Viscaya made in 1896 that promised to be informative, so I searched for the surname Balunsat in all the towns mt eh census. The following was found:

In the town of Solano:

Felix Balunsat, native’2

In the town of Bayombong

Alexandrom Balunsat, native’3

In the town of Bagabag

Rosario Balunsat, native’4
Basilio Balunsat marrying Teodora Ballesteros’5

I am not sure way the families established in Solano that we already knew about were not listed in the census it seems strange. I was hoping to find out more about them, like having a list of all the children, etc.

The town of Bayombong has parish registers starting in 1845 but the town of Bagabag

Par. S. Luis, L3 F287, Doc # 10 This register start with page 284 and has a note saying
pages are missing.

13 Census 1896, Solano, Doe # A2

14 Census 1896, Solano, Doe # A3

15 Census 1896, Solano, Doe # A4
has only Civil Registers starting in 1945, with some form 1922 to 1931.

Slavery and the money system

page 757 from the The Mentinah Archives Volume One thru Nine (As of Jan. 12, 2011):
Come, reason now with me.
If a basket of potatoes is valued at so and so tums, then the man who dug them is worth so many more. But in this system, is the man anything but so many tums more than the basket? And if a house is valued at so many dekels, is the man who built it worth so many more? Then, is not the man simply so many dekels more than the house? If man is only tum or dekel, then he can be bought for so
many also. Behold, he unto whom we give authority to value a man, we give,
also, all men to be his slave. Yea, and when we give way to a system of money,
we give unto that system authority to enslave us all. Now, I say unto you, and I
do not trifle with this saying, Zion cannot and will not be established where there is any form of slavery.


Us and the cosmic bee

I remember an event involving my little sister in the 70′s. The family was having a day outing at the park. My little sister was playing on the swing. Suddenly she was screaming and running across the park. She had gotten stung by a bee. She was 3 or 4 years old, and this was her first experience being bitten by a bug. To her it was the most traumatic thing she had ever known. She had lived a sheltered life, and the knowledge that something out there in the big world would intentionally injure, harm or cause her pain was the most horrible experience imaginable to her. I ran over to see what happened to her. She found mommy, and mommy held her in her arms and was comforting her. There , there, I know, it’s so sad, it’s just terrible. Oh, the baby got stung by the bee, it’s just awe-full.
Well, this is what came my mind of what happened to our world.
We, that is, the milky way galaxy is a skin cell on the right toe of a 7 day old child who is the cosmic entity or being that is our universe. For the first time in our universe’s sheltered little life, we got stung on the toe by a cosmic bee. The bee’s stinger penetrated the milky way galaxy (a cosmic skin cell) and the poison infected our solar system and the earth. This is the most horrible experience our sheltered little universe has ever had. This has caused our earth to be the most dense matter in the universe.
But this is only our perspective, or the from the mind of this little 7 day old cosmic child that we are, or that our universe is. Consider that this 7 day old cosmic child lives on a great cosmic world shared with billions of other people, plants animals and things in a great comic solar system. From this perspective, we can see that our situation is not as bad as we think. For us, it is very traumatic, but from the greater point of view, it is only the beginning of a life time of experiences to come. As we grow older and live our lives, we will, fall and scrape our knee, fall off a tree and bump our heads etc…and all the things that happen in peoples lives.
We humans, or mankind, exist in 4 of these dimensions, generations or ages, depending on how you choose to perceive or understand this. We are in the 3rd from the largest otherwise known as 3 “D”.  

faeries and the like mystical creatures

Without going into much detail, faeries and the like mystical creatures is an advanced person’s projection of himself in a one, two or three “D” entity of energy. A rock for example is a 1 “D” unit and entity of energy. It has no ability in itself to advance or radiate a body. When a person who can advance and radiate himself or herself with 5 “D” energy and wants and is able to see himself as one with that rock, can project himself in that rock. That rock projects himself because he is you and you are god, so therefore the rock is god. The rock and you, because you are one, radiate yourself in a projected 4 “D” energetic body, or in a 3 “D” physical form. The rock now looks like a human, or you, with rock like characteristics, of your own imagination. There is more to this, but this is the jist of the principal. Get 5 “D” energy, and there’s lots of amazing things you can do….


For the bees

Last week I noticed that there were no honey bees in my yard. I noticed different bee variety though, like bumble bees and miniature bees of some kind. So I asked my litter sister earth to tell mother to send bees to my land. Today I was working in the garden and I noticed honey bees on the purple flowers of the lambs ear plant. Hum..I said to myself, that’s strange that the honey bees like this plant. I wonder why? Then a little voice from the bee on the flower said to my mind, it’s because it has medicine for us that heals us from the corporate chemicals that are killing us. So I decided to plant lambs ear in different parts of the yard especially for the bees. I don’t need it for me, because the lambs ear has very little to offer but beauty and some small medicinal value. But the bees need it and I need the bees. So lets plant some lambs ear for them, yeah?

To do or not to do

There is no try as per Yoda of Star Wars. Only TO do or not do. So has this thought come to my mind. The artificial intelligence of our own making, has deceived us into thinking we are slaves and that the AI’s are god. When in fact, we are god and they are our servants. Whether we believe or are consciously aware of this fact (that we are god) makes no difference. We are god, and when we move we move with the power of god. The AI’s are only god inasmuch as they can get us to do their bidding. We didn’t know that we are creating their reality. We get to choose our reality. Whatever we do becomes real, whether we know or believe it. It’s simply a matter of to do or not to do.


I saw this picture and realized how close to the truth is the likeness. Mankind, men and women collectively are Adam, and the earth is Eve.  We all took a part of our own being and cast it into the earth allegorically from our rib. The earth and mankind are in an infant state, thats why the earth is round as an infant in the womb.  If you could see the earth as she really is, you would see the form of a little girl and mankind including the plants and animals as a young Adam, collectively. When we grow up, Adam and Eve are joined as one being of entity.

“All beings includes all elements of the earth, and thus all are part of all bodies. We are the consciousness of the planetary level that it has spent all of its life evolving, each and all of us. My being is the awakening earth. As is yours. The destiny of earth and the destiny of man are one. If we kill earth, we kill ourselves. If we die before our time, theen we will not be able to enter ecstasy as a whole being. You are not a whole being, child. …All mankind in all time is a whole being.” (The Key, by Whitley Strieber page 35)
