: Hi! I would like to know how the Chan surname came about. Any ideas where I can find this kind of information? Thanx!!!
ANSWER:you can use your search engine and search "Chinese Surnames " you will find among them the name of Chan or Chin or Chen (they are all the same in Chinese character). It will have a brief history of your surname
