Renewing my search

I'm renewing my attempt to find my mom's classmates.

Today, I sent emails to contacts I found on the web. I also posted messages on some forums. Hope they can lead me to Pangasinan organizations who might have contact with the Imeldists.

Can you refer me to groups (federations/organizations) that may have contacts with Alumni of Blessed Imelda's Academy Class of 1957 (Dagupan, Philippines)?

I am helping my mother find these classmates. See here: http://imeldist1957.blogspot.com/ .

By the way, I found my way to the blog of Vice Mayor Alvin Fernandez. http://vmalvinfernandez.blogspot.com/ There's one person who we expect to have many contacts.

Let's see if there's any response to my emails and forum posts.

The Plan

Because my mother's class was all girls, most of the names I have are maiden names. This will be a challenge when I search for classmates.

1.) Google search each name
2.) Search for Netizens in Dagupan with same last surnames - they might be relatives of the Imeldists of 1957
3.) Contact Domincan School
4.) Make a list on Alumni.Net

That's it so far. What other strategies can I use to find the Imeldists?

The Crusade

Over the past couple of years, I have been trying to teach my mother to use e-mail. Since she's in Baguio while I'm in Manila, I don't get the chance to coach her for long periods. She easily gets tired staring at the monitor so I get to coach her just around half an hour when I'm in Baguio. And that's not very often.

Long story short: I've been trying to find ways to motivate her to e-mail more often so she gets used to it.

And finally, she found one good motivation: To write her long lost elementary classmates.

Thus, this blog which aims to find her classmates and get in touch with them through e-mail. And then later, maybe even through skype or yahoo messenger! (?)

Let's see how it will go.

Goodluck to us, Mom!
