Well, it's actually better to interview both your parents, other relatives about your grandparents and the family history. Toishan is a large county in Guangdong Province, Southern China. There are many branches of the Li (Lee) family in the various villages in Toishan. You need a village to pinpoint your Li line. If you have the Chinese characters (copies or photos), ask a Chinese translator to help locate the village. Also, don't discount accessing your family through the released US Census which start from 1790-1920 which may be located at the research libraries (archives, genealogy) near you or Latter Day Saints' Family History Center on microfilm. You must know the county & city where your ancestors lived in Oregon. Info given is name of household, occupation, age, sex, marital status, country of birth, other family member names. Doing family history starts with the most recent information on your family and working back.
