My surname is (xú, xu2). My generation name is F (xiào, xiao4). My father's generation name is Kien (sorry, I do have a character to assist). We are Hokkien.
I'm trying to trace my roots but I'm not really sure where to start. As far as I know my family (as far back as my paternal grandfather) come from the Fujian Province but whereabouts exactly I'm not sure.
I always thought my grandfather was born in Malaysia but I recently heard from other sources that he could've migrated from China as a young man.
It would be great if I could actually determine genealogy and trace as far back as possible but I'll be happy to settle for the family village so I can trace for the Family Book and possibly any burial sites etc.
Any guidance or pointers appreciated.
