Bringing together community leaders from diverse organizations characterizes FANHS PA Chapter's annual Filipino American History banquet. FANHS PA's 3rd annual banquet drew leaders from the Filipino Executive Council of Greater Philadelphia (FECGP a coalition of 20+ Filipino orgs), Asian Americans United (AAU), Asian American Women's Coalition (AAWC), alumni from Temple University's TUPAC, Folk Arts Cultural Treasures School and many more to HK Golden Phoenix Restaurant in Philadelphia's Chinatown on October 22. With a 10-course dinner, raffle and auction, performances by Drexel's FISDU and the St. Augustine Church Choir plus dancing led by "DJ Pure J," everyone truly enjoyed the event! Mr. Gem Daus, professor of Filipino American Studies at the University of Maryland, spoke of how he engages his students in making connections between Filipino American history and contemporary struggles for justice. Dr. Rommel Rivera, coordinator of the upcoming FECGP and AAWC sponsored Philadelphia exhibit of the Smithsonian's "Singgalot" photo exhibit, invited guests to the November 19th opening. Thanks to everyone -- donors, supporters, attendees, performers -- who celebrated!

"...Starting pitcher is none other than Timothy Lincecum, one of major league baseball's best ever pitchers. I had always heard that Tim Lincecum was part Filipina/o, and so I did some internet digging. Lots of media reports say that Lincecum's grandparents were immigrants from the Philippines. In fact, his roots in Filipino America go even deeper than that. Tim Lincecum is fourth generation. And this is what I found:
Please read through to the end of the article, where you will read about Rebecca "Becky" Asis, Tim Lincecum's mother, a third generation Pinay born in Seattle (according to ancestry.com records).
From the article:
A second-generation Filipino-American, Becky is one of Balleriano and Philomena Asis' 10 children—eight girls, and two boys.
Balleriano was born in Honolulu, Hi., his father Genaro Asis was born in Mindanao, Philippines; his mother Alberta Alcoy was born in Cebu City, Philippines.
Philomena was born in Stockton, Calif., her father Leoncio Marcigan was born in Batangas, Philippines; her mother Anustasia Dominguez was born in Siquijor, Philippines.
Some of you may remember the Asis family as one of the pioneering families in Stockton. Alberta Alcoy Asis went to Hawaii in the 1910s with her mother as a sakada and married Genaro Asis, who was a leader in the 1919 sugar strike. The Asis family later migrated to the Stockton area and then the Seattle area. Alberta Asis was one of the founding members of the Maria Clara Lodge of the Caballeros de Dimas Alang in Stockton in the 1920s and her oral history is in our FANHS archives (BA/NC81-Fil-009CA). I wish we knew more about his mother's maternal relatives, the Dominguez/Marcigan family from Stockton. My research found that Leoncio and Anastasia arrived in Los Angeles in 1924 from Hawaii. Their daughter Philomena was born in November, 1930 in Stockton. Perhaps some of you may remember them in Stockton?
Go GIANTS! (with apologies to our FANHS national president who can still root for the Phillies!) And happy Filipino American History Month!"

Many, many thanks to all who sponsored, presented, performed, volunteered, organized, donated to and attended the 13th biennial national conference of FANHS this July 21-24, 2010 at Seattle University! We appreciate everyone who has been part of FANHS in some way -- including many of you who've supported FANHS from a distance.
People have stopped to write and tell me how much they enjoyed and learned from this conference. The "morning after" FANHS, professor/author Leny Strobel wrote about "The Good Work of FANHS" on her blog: http://kathang-pinay2.blogspot.com/2010/07/good-work-of-fanhs.html
Aldrich Sabach of PEP http://pepsf.org/ shares his FANHS 2010 collection with all of us:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/aldrichphotography/sets/72157624465131325/ And watch out for the DVDs -- of the conference and of "Dance Down Memory Lane" -- available from FANHS Hampton Roads (Virginia) Chapter. Contact Edwina Bergano firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the DVDs.
We'll add to these links as we move forward and continue to promote Filipino American history.
I'm ever hopeful,

Seattle (FANHS National) – Simeona (Mona) Viernes Pasquil – the first woman, more importantly the first Filipino American, to be appointed acting Lieutenant Governor of the State of California – has verbally agreed “unanimously” to be the principal speaker at the Filipino American National Historical Society’s 13th National Conference July 24 in Seattle. Lt. Gov. Pasquil will speak at the conference’s Saturday evening dinner. The three day conference is being held at Seattle University.
A third-generation Pinay from Sacramento, Calif., Mona - as all of her friends call her - was an active participant in FANHS’ Fifth National conference in 1994 at San Francisco.
Mona’s parents, Cornelio and Connie Viernes attended the First Young Filipino Peoples’ Far West Convention in Seattle. That 1971 gathering, earmarked as the “Birth of the Filipino American Movement,” has spurred the 2010 FANHS conference theme, “Quest for Emergence – A Retrospective.” A 1971 reunion will be held the Tuesday before the conference opening.
