In Reply to: Help!! Convert Indonesian Chinese Name posted by Kaithlyn on April 18, 2000 at 08:15:17:
: I'm actually a half Indonesian Chinese half Eurasian but I'm born as a Singaporean and brought up in Singapore.I need help because I've been wanting to find more about what my surname is in Indonesian.My Chinese surname is chua and I would like to know what is it in Indonesian.It sounds crazy but I've lost touch with my relatives in Indonesia and my dad doesn't speak any indonesian so it's useless asking him.I'm just curious because when I hang out with my Indonesian Chinese frens,they seem to know how they got their Indonesian surname...yet I do not even know mine...
: Please help.
I'm trying to trace my family origins and came accross your question.
I believe that in Indonesia the name Chua was registered by the Dutch
registry as TJOA. If this is correct,the origins of this family migrated
from Fujian province ? 1800s or early1900.I believe this family is not
originally from Fujian but were? banished from the emperor's court to
the then poor Fujian province.
I dont have any solid references but this info might help.
