Dear Ms. Magdua,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located two series that may include information about war brides from the Philippines: (1) General Records, 1947 - 1949 of G-1 (Personnel) in the Records of the Far East Command, the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers, and the United Nations Command, 1945-57 (Record Group 554) and (2) Register of War Brides with Children Admitted at San Francisco, California, 3/4/1946 - 8/1/1948 of the Records of the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85). The first series is in the custody of the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) and can be contact via email at email@example.com. The second series is in the custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC (RDT1) and can be contact via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 1946 Alien Fiancées and Fiancés Act increased the number of Filipino war brides allowed into the United States.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
