> Dear Primos, Friends and Readers:
> This issue is the 150th online issue of Somos Primos. It has been a challenge and a joy to prepare the monthly publications. So much is happening politically, it is difficult to filter out purely current political incidents and events from heritage and family based issues.
> It is very encouraging to see so many of you involved in promoting our history and heritage. Thank you all. It is the accumulation and combination of personal family research, which is revealing the reality of history.
> Projects are happening all over the nation. The Pascual shield on the front page is an example. In January the Pascual family of Manila held their 3rd International Family Reunion. Somos Primos will be sharing the marvelous accomplishment of their family outreach as an encouraging example to all of us. Their genealogical research goes back to a Spanish soldier in the 1700s.
