Their family and a nephew of my grandfather had a vacation in China sometime in December 19, 1932.Their port of entry was Beijing, China.When they returned to the Philippines Pedro and Enrique were not with them. They left the two in China. Then my grand parents separated sometime in 1933. My grandmother brought all her children in Manila.My grandfather never allowed Pedro and Enrique to return to the Philippines. Up to this time they have not returned. Sometime in the early '70's the house of my grandfather died in Chinese General Hospital.He was buried in North Cemetery.Then my uncle Pacifico died also. Then the house of my grandmother was burned. All records and pictures of the family were burned.My sister wrote the Chinese Embassy to ask about Pedro and Enrique's whereabouts. She was told by one of the consuls to ask Yap Family Association/Yap Fraternity, Inc.My sister have attended the Family New Year Party for 4 times. three times in the Yap Family Association old building.And last January 30,2013 in the new building of the Yap Fraternity, Inc.We were able to get the address of Pedro and Enrique from the family of my great grandfather in Guagua, Pampanga. From Yap Chui Ching (deceased).His grandson from his chinese wife.Since the death of Yap Chui Ching we have no informations if Pedro and Enrique are still alive. They are in Sheyi Cun, Shishan Zhen, Nan'an Village, Quanzhou, Fujian, China.I'm in Portland, Maine, USA and moving by nest month to Canton, Michigan . I would like to ask if you have a chapter in Canton, Michigan? So my sister can also apply for membership.God bless and have a great day!
