Mag-Anak is one of the oldest and most reliable groups. It has more than 3,000 members, many of whom are very knowledgeable. U.S. Immigration issues are foremost on Mag-Anak. While it can address just about any Philippine-related question, its specialty is helping members seeking to bring a Filipina girlfriend, fiancé, or wife to the United States.
Living in the Philippines is a huge Yahoo on-line group with over 18,000 members. The group discusses just about anything having any connection to the Philippines. Early on, the moderation of this group tended to screen out posts which focused on problems with life in the Philippines. While still prim and proper, the moderation seems less restrictive now. It’s a useful group to anyone living in or considering life in the Philippines.
