: : I am looking for the origin of YAP surname because my grandfather is surnamed YAP and he was supposed to have come from Amoy, China. His name is Yap Chui Lian.
: Hi Roselle, are you looking up your family roots? My last name is Yap also. We are of Hakka origin. My grandfather's name is Yap Young. His Chinese name is Jhun Jeuk. He came from a village in China called Loong Boi Liang -"Dragon Back Ridge" and immigrated to the West Indies. As I understand it, the "first member" of my Yap family came from an area in the Province of Fu Kien, China. ???? What type of information do you have on the Yaps?
My name is rudy yap and as far as i'm concern, my yap family also come from province of fu kien, china. i just wonder who is our 1st yap ancestor of all yap's. Forgot also is my grandfather name is Yap Chai Tung.
