Family records include the Cacas, Fune-Palangdao, Panaganiban-Chapman, Quidangen-Sarmiento, and Toribio families among several others. Finally, the collection contains materials related to art, research, and publishing projects completed by Rita M. Cacas. Materials in the archive include photographs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, publications, ephemera, audiovisual materials, and electronic records. The Rita M.
