I am trying to find out if there are any relatives in China. My great grandfather's surname is Ah-sing.
I am not sure what his chinese name was but when he came to South Africa in 1937 he was 40 years old. so he was born in 1897.
Apparently he was related to the royal family. that is what my family tells me but i am not sure how true that is. so I want to find out. Apparently he was the only son, his family in China adopted a son after he ran away from China.
The only name i have for him is Lewsing Ah-sing (again I am not sure if the name is right) from what I have read chinese who fled china swopped their names and surnames around.
On his passport he says his native place is Kwangtung
