My name is Oliver and my middle name is Paragas. I am a 28 year old male from San Diego, California. I was born in Pangasinan and moved to the U.S when I was 9 years old. I am very excited that I found this site. Somebody here mentioned that the name originated from Pangasinan. I believe it did because all of the "Paragas" I met were from Pangasinan.
My grandfather's name is Rufino Paragas. He was married to Eugenia and their children is Caesar (Dagupan), Aurora (Michigan), Fe (Michigan), and Agustina (Michigan).
My grandparents both past away a couple of years ago. May their souls rest in peace.
Pangasinan is the city of endless bangus (milkfish). I remember growing up as a child and my grandfather and I would canoe for miles across the rivers in Pangasinan. I believe it was called Mayombo and my family and I lived in Dagupan City.
