Thelma,

Welcome to the perplexing-but-intriguing world of Chinese genealogy. I am glad I was able to further your genealogical search. I am a newbie myself in genealogy.

It appears that your search may be leading you to the walled villages of the New Territories area of Hong Kong. I did a bit of further snooping on the internet.....it appears that the Tang surname is dominant in the Lung Yeuk Tau area, but there is a famous Leung Ancestral Hall in the area.....I believe Leong, Leung and Liang are interchangeable Anglicized spelling of the same Chinese character surname .

Also, perhaps you already know this already, but here is a link to a great website on the Leong family tree: http://www.angelfire.com/co/leong/

Anyway, my parents are from the Xinhui District of Guangdong Province. I have traveled to my ancestral village several times already. I live in Makakilo.

Aloha,
Raymond
