I saw your message "looking for the origin of the Javier name". My name Eric Duldulao Javier. My father is Gonzalo Centeno Javier. He was born in Laoag City, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The Javier ancestors originated in Cavite, Philippines. Ourgreat Grandparents are Narciso Javier and Maria Advincula born in Cavite. I hope it helps you find your roots.
