Andrés Bonifacio y de Castro (November 30, 1863 – May 10, 1897) was a Filipino nationalist and revolutionary leader. He is often called "the Father of the Philippine Revolution". He was a founder and later Supremo ("supreme leader") of the Kataas-taasan, Kagalang-galangang Katipunan ng mga Anak ng Bayan or simply and more popularly called Katipunan, a movement which sought the independence of the Philippines from Spanish colonial rule and started the Philippine Revolution. He is considered a de facto national hero of the Philippines, and is also considered by some Filipino historians to be the first President of the Philippines (through the revolutionary government he established), but officially he is not recognized as such.

Editor's Note: I have been fascinated with genealogy and family when I was in university and it never ceased to amaze me about finding your roots. This is the reason why I took History and started tracing my family tree. This time around after watching episodes of Finding Your Roots by Henry Louis Gates and Who Do You Think You Are. I have decided to research on the family tree of famous celebrities and historical figures in the Philippines.

In this post, I will feature the family tree of Gilas Pilipinas guard and Rain or Shine hitman Paul Lee. Bear in mind that I don't have all the information from him first hand so I just did an Internet research and look for references on his family heritage on newspaper articles, Internet posts and other biographical entries out there. So feel free to correct and provide more information if I missed important information.

Also known as Paul John Dalistan, he is currently playing for Rain or Shine Elasto Painters in the Philippine Basketball Association where he was drafted 2nd by Rain or Shine in the 2011 PBA Draft. He is currently one of the deadliest 3-point shooters in the league right now because of his accuracy and his percentage.
