I was told that Farinas was Portugese. I'm not surprised about it being Spanish in origin as well, since the Spaniards occupied the Philippines for hundreds of years. I'm a little surprised about its Italian persuasion. I, too, have been interested in researching my family tree. However, I've only been able to go back to my great grandparents, Lope Farinas and Saturnina Candelaria.
How can I get more information on them?
