This book has a long umbilical cord. It is about Spanish and American families that separately arrive in the Philippines in 1896 and 1931. They lived during the colonial eras in the Philippines from the 16th to the 20th century. Members of the third and fourth generations of the Capen and Rodriguez families, who agreed to talk about their and their forebears' lives, are veritable representatives of the first and second generations of their ancestors, who are no longer around. The story-telling is aided by documents, letters, recollections of relatives, and a comprehensive family tree that dates as far back as 400 years; their recollections are animated not only by their knowledge of the past but by the depth and the growth of their self-knowledge. This information, in modern times, is a viable warranty. In a sense, this book has psychological inroads to the living and the dead.
