Thanks for your suggestion, but I do not know that these are the same Tangs I am looking for (I am not saying that they are not; somewhere down the line, they may end up being people I am looking to track.) The reason I have my doubts is that as far as I know, my family did not come here to work on the railroads or search for gold. My ancestors were merchants. My great grandfather and great great grandfather both retired in China -- they did not "settle here." I'm trying to locate the family association in the greater Phoenix area, because if that is where I will find this history book that exists, then that will provide me with more info with regards to family names and relations.
: Suggest you take a look at this website: http://dizzy.library.arizona.edu/promise/ which has a good account of the early Chinese in tucson, AZ and you will find information about the various people in the Tang Family you are looking for.

: : I am looking for the Tang Family Association in Phoenix, AZ. I understand that the father of the association, who is likely now deceased, created a book of the Tang family. It is my understanding that my sister, one of my cousins, and I are in the book (my family's contribution to it would have ended in the late 60s/early 70s). The Tang branch of my family is on my paternal grandfather's side. As I understand it, my family (paternal side) origates from HoiPing/Siyup.
