Answer:It's difficult to research just the Fung family in Zhongshan. It's a large county with many branches of Fungs ....You need to pinpoint whether it was Macao or HK where the adoption took place. Often, there may not be written records of the whereabouts unless a religious mission or attorney was involved.
Start with the family which adopted her and ask some questions about her origins.
good luck. JWC Low
