Upgrade delay

Apologies for the delay in upgrading this website. Plans for upgrding have not been abandoned; a significant amount of time will however need to be allocated for the job. Thanks for your patience and the site will, hopefully, be revamped in 2004.

Plans to upgrade

We are planning to upgrade this site to allow interactive submission of news and other items. Family members will be able to subscribe to the site and can submit articles directly, with little or no moderation from the site administrators. We hope to upgrade the site in the next quarter.

Please let us know what you want to see on this site, including changes to the look and feel, site navigation, other facilities, etc. and we will try to integrate all suggestions in the upgrade of the site.

We may also move to a new web address, hopefully, depending on availability of the name.

We also wish to thank those who have been posting messages to the Fernan email list, [email protected]. Please continue to use the list, and for those who are not on the list yet, please subscribe by sending email to [email protected] or by visiting

The Fernan Family Site

Over the years, Fernans have migrated continously to all parts of the Philippines and the World. This site was created to keep up with relatives wherever they are and to assist in tracing our family heritage. This is an evolving site, by no means complete. It is dependent on the contribution of Fernan family members everywhere. If information on your branch of the family is lacking or missing, please send stories, images, and any other bits that you want included here. Suggestions for improving the site are also most welcome. To include your stories and other information in this site, Email Diday Fernan-Ramilo.
