I'm looking for information about someone named Vicenta Ibanez, born in Cavite sometime in 1850 or thereabouts and lived in Manila about the 1870's. She was my great-grandmother.

Hi Raymond. I don't have her in my family; but you may want to consult the CLDS site. I did a quick search based on the name and got several hits:

Also you can search vital records (birth, marriage, death) from Manila on-line now. It was pretty cool -- I found so many records that refer to my great grandparents. Here's the link:

Good luck!

Thank you very much Mona Liza! You've given me a good lead when I just had nothing to work from. I'll report later on my progress. I know much now about my great-grandfather but hardly anything about her.

Dear Mona Liza, I'm back on square one. Nothing there on Vicenta Ibanez, born in Cavite sometime 1850-1860. All entries are on persons after 1900. Thanks for your help. Will look further.

Hi, Raymund. If you are willing to do the legwork, you can go to the nearest Mormon Family History Center, request the correct microfilm number and view the archived records.

I searched for Cavite on the CLDS site and got this You can choose the microfilm number from the roster. If you are based in Metro Manila, the best library is along Temple Drive in White Plains, QC.

Again, good luck! :)

Dear Mona Liza,
Wow again thanks! I'll try that website first. If I still get nowhere, I'll have to do the "legwork" later. I'm not in Metro-M right now but far out in the south end of the country. You've been very encouraging. Vicenta Ibanez from the 19th century comes in and out of family "oral history" (this is the Llorca Family) and even her beauty had been alluded to but still very much a mystery. Her husband, our greatgrandfather, was a Spaniard.

'Happy to help, Raymond! The great thing about how the CLDS Family History Centers are set up is that no matter where you are, you should be able to request a copy of the microfilm you need. :)
