Below are reactions and reflections from our Kasimanwas after reading our Maragtas.  Salamat gid ka mga sulat ninyo, very encouraging gid. 
Mabuhay kita tanan nga Janiuaynon! 

In the "Maragtas sang Janiuay" page link at the bottom page, we will have a
Forum section to make space of Q&A relating to our Maragtas.  We will be posting Catchit Tionko's questions there and hopefully our Kasimanwas around the world can share what they know via our
Guestbook or they can e-mail at admin@janiuay.net.  Mga istorya bala ka mga kamal-aman naton are very much welcome here.

 Salamat gid.

A blessed 2009 sa inyo tanan mga kasimanwa. Sa inyo tanan dyan sa East Coast thank you so much for your effort in putting up this website. I do greatly appreciate it. This will paved the way of uniting and interacting to all the Janiuaynons all throughout the globe (basta may dyan nga internet). Personally it make me even proud of my identity being a Janiuaynon (this as I read the history of Janiuay). More Power and praying that we will all be successful in every endeavor we have. God bless us all especially ang aton nga banwa JANIUAY.

hi, everyone,

very interesting ang maragtas kang janiuay especially how surnames came into being. now we know about tirador and catequista. what about mamon & estante, espada & escabarte, estandarte, etc? is there a story behind these surnames, too, ukon pinili lang out of a list provided by the spaniards? it would be good to know about this since ang janiuay is quite unique when it comes to surnames. sa iban nga banwa most surnames start with the first letter of the town's name. pinasahi gid atun banwa?

do we also have references about our revolutionary past- from the spanish colonization to american and japanese occupation? am quite sure our town was a major flashpoint in our ancestors' struggle to get rid of foreign domination and restore the freedom of their generation and the next. this revolutionary maragtas, i believe, will make us even prouder janiuaynons.
