Branching of bloodlines is a natural process as a clan expands through generations after generations, through centuries of good and bad times. As one clan increases in number, the more complex it becomes, and the more difficult members relate to one another. Without keeping track of each generation, future clan members lose link of their roots, such that the past generations fall into the vast oblivion. Luckily for the ZAMORAS CLAN, we have Tíu Paquito who painlessly researched the genealogy, impeccably timed to get the chance of asking older clan members just before they passed away. The resulting integration of our bloodlines into the composite Family Tree has become the pillar of strength among us in the present generation. Perhaps one significant factor in our dynamic unity is the convenience of having a large number of clan members in Dipolog, Zamboanga del Norte. It is always easy to organize the clan members in Dipolog and then invite those from distant places for some important Clan events. Dipolog, which is the home of more or less 3,000 Zamoras blooodlines, is practically the base of the Zamoras Clan. Members dwelling in any parts of the Philippines and abroad are always welcome to visit the home of the Clan.
Interestingly, as we trace our lineages backwards, we come across historical times such as the world wars, the Japanese occupation, the periodic Moro attacks, the American period and the Spanish era. Little do we know how they dealt with those foreign masters, as well as their oppressions, the natural famines, the catastrophes and the epidemics. They surely played some roles in our history although not in the records. When and why did our great, great grandparents switch from
