1920ChurchCensus Jai Paeng Mafongfong small

This image is a snapshot of my Jai (pronounced Yai) , Pa’eng and Ma’fongfong family roots recorded in the 1920 Census of Guam conducted by the Catholic Church. Notice how the names were still being recorded by the Church using the Spanish convention (first name, paternal surname, and maternal surname). Also, the Church and Spaniards did not record the married woman's husband's surname; they left the woman's maiden name completely in tact.


This Church census was conducted independently and separately from the 1920 U.S. Federal Census of Guam.
