hi alex

there are a lot of del fierros in the bay area their roots are mainly from the zambales branch of the family

the del fierro roots are apparently from castille in spain (ie kastila in the tagalog vernacular)

the cebu branch of the del fierro family is an old one, (note the the second governor of the province of zambales was one miguel del fierro)

a large branch of the family is in davao - started by Potenciano del Fierro - youngest of 7 siblings of the del fierros of Iba/Palauig, Zambales

(also ramon del fierro magsaysay third president of the philippine post war republic is a relative- but that is another story)

the del fierros had a reunion in New York last year and in San Francisco the year before. I was unable to attend due to present circumstances - I reside in Australia

Alex do write in again I will try and get the contact addresses of the del fierros in your area
