: The only info we know is that our our grandfather has a family in guchin, amoy, china. We got the place from his residence certificate here in the philippines. he has a family too in china and we know the name of his son, Bunyee. Im not really sure of the spelling of the places and name in china.we've never been in china.

Hi Roselle and Rick, I am another Yap looking for her roots but I don't think I have any relatives in the Phillipines. I know my grandfather, who left China for Jamaica, had a brother who we think went to Singapore. Suppose he went to the Phillipines instead? I didn't think that Yap was such a popular name. How do we find out if we are all related somehow? Smile. Would like to hear from you guys. Thanks.
