The 9/11 Memorial

In 2006, I linked to a website (now defunct) that indicated that at least 15 individuals of Filipino descent died at the World Trade Center towers on 11 September 2001. In 2007, I linked the same names to obituaries that first appeared in the New York Times and other newspapers, even though evidence they were Filipino was not always clear. Since then, the inauguration of the 9/11 Memorial has made it possible to confirm that most of them were born in the Philippines, as well as identify other individuals not previously listed as Filipino.

Unless otherwise indicated, the basis for concluding that the 21 individuals named below were Filipino is the 9/11 Memorial.
