: i am interested in researching family tree for my 3 children (husband chinese) any info. on these family names or the village?
Is your last name Lee? I know of a famous Lee family that had nine brothers Arounf the 1860's. All of the desendants immigrated to the United States. They are from Toishan (Taishan is the Mandrian speach), Toishan is Cantonese and Hoishan is the Toishanese.
Also Toishan is located at 112 East Longitutde and 22 North latitude. Hong Kong, Canton and Toishan would form a triangle if connected on a map.
