I know my surname TINKEW is not in original Chinese. But it was changed from a Chinese name to make it sound more English.
Can anyone help me to figure out what the original Chinese sounding name might be? Maybe TEN????something? My grandfather came from China but I don't even know where!
I know it's a long shot but I am dying to find out my family's REAL Chinese Surname or even to find out what it might have been.
Please send me an email if you have any suggestions as to how I can find my heritage name?
