My grandma is a Chow from HoiPing. She married a Wong. We go back about 4 generations - Wong/Chow or Chow/Wong marriages. Do you know where in HoiPing? My grandma was born in 1920 and my grandfather passed away in the 50's. My mom (the Wong side) was from Check Hom and moved to Wo Ming Haung. My dad's side is also from Hoi Ping and is Chow.
There have also been border disputes and changes in borders so parts of what used to Hoi Ping could be Toy San and vice verse. Do you know you're grandfather's name? You'll need this type of info to trace back the history and to know where your grandfather's house is.
