Im Reynaldo Zarate from Pangasinan one of a big province in Philippines. I'am a professional Engineer. My ancestors are from Dagupan City, Pangasinan but currently residing at Laoac,small town of Pangasinan. My grandfather CIRILO ZARATE was awarded as one of the outstanding Vice Mayor of the year 1981 and appointed Mayor for several months.
Last February 22 of the year 1997, our family's from Pangasinan and Manila, Philippines particularly from Dagupan City,Urdaneta City,Manaoag,Mapandan,Mangaldan,Laoac and other town of Pangasinan held reunion at Urdaneta City,Pangasinan.Elders of the family's from different part of the Province introduced every member of the family. Finuliar family's in one town of Pangasinan(Mapandan) are very much related to Zarate clan as discussed by one elder because there grand-grand mother is Zarate. I was one of a college student then.
