Hello Augustine,

I would like to let you know that in my place there are plenty of Santillan clan residents.

In fact, our Province (or State) has the most number of residents or people with the Santillan surname, and our place is called Antique province, in the Western Visayas region, island of Panay, Philippines.

Our particular branch of the Santillan clan in Antique, Philippines is also very popular because some of us are Radio Broadcasters, and we have made the SANTILLAN surname well-known in our area and region.

I for one used to a Newscaster/Radio Announcer in 3 different Radio Stations (2 AM & 1 FM station) in Antique.
My auntie (cousin of my father) named Edith Santillan-Camina was a pioneer Radio Station announcer in 2 other radio stations during her time, but she is now living in Libya, Africa. Also, there used to be a private Radio Station that was owned and operated by the Santillan family in our place, during the period 1976-1986, but it is now defunct.

Another interesting fact to note is that one of our most popular Santillan family member - his name is Errol T. Santillan - who used to be a Radio Announcer also, is now a legislator in our Province's Board or Legislative office (equivalent to a State's Senate in the US). He is on his 10th year now as a high-ranking Government official in our province, although he has lost in an election once when he tried to run for the post of Vice Governor, because he was unprepared financially for campaign funds.

For more information about this, you may email me in this address or my work/office email address -

Hoping that we could get in touch and know other Santillan clan members worldwide.
