: : Not necessarily, but let's compare notes. My

: : Shing-Wei county in Guandong Province and came

: : Jok-Quan (Bamboo Place). Most of the residents

: : were three siblings, one of which went to Cuba.

: My maternal grandfather, Julian Fong, was from the same province. He took went to Cuba as a young boy and lived there until he came to the US in '68. I check with my mother to see if she may know of your relative. Can you give me more information? I have always been curious as to the history of the Chinese in Cuba. Looking forward to hearing from you.
My Grandfather told me that he had heard from someone in Cuba who claimed to be a relative and needed assistance getting to the states. He declined at the time, stating that he could not be sure that he was a relative. If Julian Fong came from the same village of Jok-Quan (Bamboo Place), then he may very well have been one of our lost relatives. My Grandfather is Chie Fong, who currently lives in Arkansas.
