You are fortunate that the Khoo family clan has a very elaborate website at http://khookongsi.com.my/history_origin.html This particular Khoo website is located in Penang, Malaysia......and the origin of this Khoo family clan is Amoy, same origin as your maternal Khoo family. Specifically, the Penang Khoo's ancestral origin is Sin Kang Seah, Sin Aun Village, Sam Toh District, Hai Teng County, Chiang Chew Prefecture, Hokkien Province, China. So, chances are very good that your maternal Khoo's may be from the very same village area. Anyway, take a look at the website......it contains loads of interesting information about the Khoo family clan.
