My ancestor Liem (Lin) Tho Seng and his son Liem Tjoe Sing (Chu Sing?) arrived from Tjiang Tjioe (=Zhangzhou), "Thio Thoa Koan". I need to know what this "Thio Thoa Koa" means (maybe some kind of county or village name?). They arrived in Indonesia (Central Java) around 1800.
Can anyone help me with:
1. The way to get old records from Zhangzhou (if possible)
2. Any relatives out there? We're preparing a huge clan meeting next year. 300+ families just in Jakarta!
