Have your tried the Hawaii Chinese History Center at 111 North King St. Suite 410. Honolulu, Hawaii 96817. I understand they have resources for Chinese family history. If the surname you have is composed of two Chinese words for "wood" then yes your ggfather's surname means forest.

***************************************************


: My surname is Lum-Ho. I am the descendant of Chinese immigrants of Maui, Hawai`i. I would like to know the dialect and origin of my surname and what it means. I was told that Lum means forest. I do know that my great-grandfather's name was Obed Lum-Ho. Please help.
