hi to you. I am also from camalig athough i am now residing in better living, paranaque city, my parents and grandfather are still residing in baligang, camalig. Hope i can help you by asking my father. I am also not so familiar with our family tree. You can keep in touch with me in this #’s 09162160694 & 09228424395.
I love the house I think it is the most beautiful thing i’ve ever seen, just by looking at it I can see the the rich history this home had seen, the dirt road, the spanish people and soldiers walking by, then the japanese military walking pass. This house is very historical for me, it is indeed beautiful. You should be proud of it.
My mom is Melisa Nuyda. Her grandfather was Congressman Faustino Nuyda. Her father was buried here and her mom (my grandma) used to live at the bottom where the house is boarded up in the picture. She says it’s very eerie there, may be haunted, but it’s a beautiful house. I just showed my mom the picture and she was so excited. We live in San Francisco, California here in the US. If there are any other Nuydas that want to keep in touch, please respond and I’ll be sure to tell my mom!
Hello, I am from Libon, Albay. My grandmother was Segundina Nuyda Samson also from Libon. I understand that the Nuydas of Bacolod, Libon Albay were from Camalig, Albay. Currently, I am residing here in Hayward,California with my family for the past 30+ years. We have been very active in the Penafrancia Fiesta Celebration in San Leandro. Pls. e-mail me.
Jennifer if you come back to check this site email me at email@example.com and then we can communicate on a more private site.
Once you email me, I can send you a link to our family tree and you can give me more info on your family so that I can add all of you to the tree.
Oh, and if we do have the same great grandfather…his name is Justino Nuyda not Faustino. Hope to here from you soon.
Hi! I come from Bacolod, Libon, Albay. I understand that my grandfather was Esteban Nuyda, and I heard a lot of stories about him. I was told he used to work for the American Navy, one of the first Filipinos to do so. He was also related to Justino Nuyda, I was told.
There are few Nuydas in Libon, and what I gather was Esteban’s sister married a Calleja. I never got the chance to know the rest.
hi Nery! what was ur grandfa’s middle name? email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
maybe we can trace them up, i also trying to reconnect my grandfa’s missing link. he was angel m. Nuyda a U.S. army veterance born 1897 at camalig albay.
If you are the Marcos Nuyda of Ateneo in class with me (Avelina Castillo) during Father Montero’s and Father McNally’s time, I would be pleased to hear from you. The Marcos Nuyda I remember was also in the same Bachelor of Arts class in Father Hidalgo’s Spanish class at the Ateneo de Zamboanga. He was also a classmate of my cousin, Antonio Agustin. If you are and inclined to stay in touch, you can email me at: email@example.com.
I hope the years after graduation from Ateneo have been good and prosperous for you. Regards
I hope this helps everyone…the Nuyda clan starts with Congressman Justino Nuyda and Purificacion Avecilla Nuyda. They had 11 children, namely: Haydee (Eding), Rizalino (Nino), Rene (Rening), Hermel (Iming), Purificacion (Cielo), Justino Jr (Tining), Glenn, Jeciel (Jeck), Djahlma, Myrla (Goy) and Leila (who died at a very young age).
My grandma (Purificacion) passed away after Myrla. Then my grandfather (Justino Sr) remarried and had 11 more children with Lola Pising.
Cielo married Delfin (Ching) Yuhico and had 9 children. I am the 7th child. This ancestral home is my childhood home. There are many stories that may be scary to the common folk but I never pesonally experienced anything. All I have are many fond memories of my childhood years in this beautiful house.
I am trying to trace my friend and classmate from Mapua, Jeciel (Jake) Nuyda when I
saw this website about your house in Camalig Albay. Is Jake still alive? I would like to contact him if possible. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can
relay this to him I would appreciate it very much. I would like to know what happened to him these last 55 years.
Thanks and god bless

First, let me convey our sincerest condolences on the demise of your father. I learned about it today.
I am a PMA graduate and when I learned that your father passed away, I reminisced the happy times during my childhood when he used to visit us at home in Binanuaan for those drinking binges with my father, the late Konsehal Agot Marquez, and their friends.
May I ask if your father was a PMA cadet when the war broke out? You see, the PMA Alumni Association is asking me if this is so. Be that as it may, your father deserves full military honors. Please make arrangements with the nearest Army unit in Albay, the 9th Infantry Division, in Daraga.

Hi! Justino Nuyda is also my great-grandfather. I’ve met some of the Nuydas who have left messages here =) I and my other first cousins (thus also Justino Nuyda’s great grandchildren) were raised in Camalig.
I’ve always been interested in “Papa”. Been trying to know more about the great man, so was pleasantly surprised to come across this site. I hear that he was also a writer and wrote a sarzuela entitled “Anti-Cristo”. If anyone knows where to find a copy, please do leave a message. Thanks!
Purchased a book on Bicolano Dramatic Tradition on some rare book bookseller on the internet. Aside from the original bicol version it has an english translation as well. It also has a few pages on Lolo Tinong’s other works and his style of writing.
Ill scan it and post it on my website once I get back home.
I remember hating to visit that house the few times we vacationed in my childhood. I was always too creeped out, especially after hearing crazy stories from Lola Cielo and her siblings. I stil remember the Kapre story – one of Lola Cielo’s brothers saw one outside the house on his way home one night. My dad (Jazzy) always told me that he grew up in this house and never saw anything supernatural, but I knew better. I also remember the story of Lola Tita’s butt being squeezed while taking a shower. They later found out that there was someone buried underneath. How can u not get scared as a kid?
Im a son of George Grageda(Olisa)Nuyda from Guinobatan, Albay ang lolo ko ay si Celestino Nuyda, sabi nya ng papa ko ang grand lolo ko raw ay si lolo tinong (justino) isang kongresista noong panahon nila, sa Camalig talaga raw nagmula ang Nuyda. Usually sa Guinobatan ako nagbabakasyon kina tita Deliah NUyda Pauyo, ewan ko lang kung buhay pa yun bahay nila kasi sa bagyo.Yun lang….

Good day everyone! I’m Jed Villanueva from the Tourism Office of Camalig. Our group is looking for more information about this old Spanish House for research, inventories, documentation and promotion to be included in the tourism packages of our municipality and for future use. We conducted interviews to the present owner of this houses but the information we got is limited. Can we solicit from you other relative information of this house specially during the Spanish Time, Japanese Regime and many others. Thank you very much!
Hi everyone, ‘am Verra Corazon Verdote Ramirez-Herrera from the Tourism Office in Camalig….as a child, i have heard lots of stories about this magnificent ancestral house since my grandfather, Federico (Picong)Nogot Verdote and the Nuydas of his time were friends… I happened to be a graduate of the Bicol University Institute of Communication and Cultural Studies in 1997 and we have as a subject Bikol Studies, we have come across the zarzuela written by the late Justino Nuyda in a book entitled “Bikol Voices Anthology”. Just happened to come across this site and wonder if we could be provided a copy of the film as mentioned by Gerol del Pilar….
Thank you very much and we hope that we could once more bring back the glory of Camalig
My great great grandfather was Angel Verdote of Marinduque. I am trying to find out where he came from and know there are a lot of Verdotes in Bicol. Does anyone have any knowledge of the family origins? Thank you!
You can send me email at kjb (at) post.harvard.edu
Good day!This is only an inquiry.I’m trying to trace my grandfather’s place.Maybe someone knew him.He’s Tranquilino Nogot.My father says he’s from camalig, daraga or guinobatan.My father don’t know my grandfather’s place because he just only stowed away to sorsogon and my father has been only once in my grandfather’s place when he was a very young child. My grandfather died when my father was only about 10 yr. old. It was said that my grandfather’s father was disabled, walked with a ‘saklay’.
oh no! i already dreamt this house and didnt even know that this was existing pala i thought it just in my dreams… talagang napanaginipan ko tong bahay na to… with all the plants around it… di ko akalaing dito ko lang pla makikita yan ulit…
Isang masayang pagbati sa inyong lahat, ako po ay isang NUYDA rin, ang aking lolo ay mula sa Guinobatan, marahil ay sa mga “unknown Nuyda” kami nagmula, pero ganon pa man, ay isang karangalan at kaligayahan ang makabasa ng mga bagay na tulad nito…. mabuhay kayong lahat….
do you happen to know someone by the name Betty Labor? She’s my mom and according to my birth certificate, my father is a certain Juanito Negrite Nuyda, I was born Dec. 23,1965.I can’t extract any info from my mom. If you know any info about him pls let me know, I will really appreciate it.
Hi my grandmother’s surname is nuyda , zenaida nuyda mortiga her mother is paula nuyda who died when she is still 3 yrs old she left bicol wer she is stiil ver young her father is andress mortiga. never knew any relatives from nuyda side since she was very young. she only recall that she has three oldmaids aunties but never know the names. hopefully we can able to find our ther relatives. here is my email add email@example.com.
We are only direct descendants to Elias Napay (brother to Segundina) the only son of Sergio Napay and only Son of Don Sixto Napay whom this house originally belongs to. The story? Every old timers of Camalig can tell the real tail.
I was wondering around the net just now and suddenly thought of searching the whereabouts of my grandmother’s family. She is Zenaida Nuyda Mortiga and she had two other brothers named Bienvenido and Andres (both were deceased). According to her accounts, her parents name are Paula Nuyda and Andres Mortiga (who was some sort of political person back in the days with some spanish bloodline). The sad story is that when their mother died, they were all sent here to Manila at a young age by their tita’s and tito’s. We tried to dig details but her memories were at best blurry …mainly because she can’t process details back then but mostly because of anger and disappointment she felt due to their banishment. She recalls before her mother died, that she lived on a big house with large religious relics and even remembers the necklace and earrings her mother had. She met my grandfather (Gaudencio Paloma Mora) during the war.
I don’t know where this is going but i just thought someone out there might knew her history before everything fades into background. She grew up without knowing any family. We ask her sometimes about it but she often kept her mouth shut. Anyways, i hope one of you can fill out some details. I’m her grandson btw. Good day!
