In Reply to: Chinese Village - Hwang Chung, Ngai Sai, Sun Wai, See Yap, Canton China posted by Lucinda Adams on July 29, 2001 at 08:33:35:
Hello. My father is from the village Sun Wai. I was born and raised here in the U.S., so I do not know too much about the areas in China. Although, my family and I recently returned from a trip to China/Hong Kong. This also included going to Sun Wai (i have never been there before). The village we visited was all Louies. Just as mentioned in another posting, there are many relatives and ancestors buried in the mountain. I had the opportunity to meet family still living there and see the graves of my great-great grandfather and his son.
If you need any information regarding this village, please feel free to contact me. Although, I may not have too much information/contacts to give you..my father might.
