ok, I'm doing some research on my surname, Tao.
My family came went from China to Vietnam approx. 200 years ago. I need some info if there could be a pin-pointed reason why such an immigration was held. Family myth has it that 5 Tao brothers went from China to North Vietnam x number of generations ago. As time passed, the brothers went down further south, ending in Hue. If it helps, the brothers was strong as Stone maisons. Also I need some help on the Hokkien surname, Lim.
