Re: Salen relatives
We are such a big Salen Family here in the Philippines. We come from Camarines Norte, a province almost four hundred kilometers south east of Manila, facing the Pacific Ocean.
We gather yearly for our annual reunion every December 25. I think we are just namesakes. I hope to discover any link between us, if any. My country was under Spain for almost four hundred years. Our conquerors might have just given us the family name Salen.
My paternal grandfather's name (deceased) is Mariano Salen, Sr. I will try as far back as I can to find out who his ancestors were.
Thanks and regards,
Salvador V. Salen
