Further to earlier posting, you are mostly interested in the village of Huang Chung. As stated before it has a population of about 3000. The predominate surname is Wong (Huang). Huang Chung is situated in Gnai Sai district in the county of Sun Wai. Sun Wai is one of the Say Yup (now five yups). Sun Wai county has hundreds of villages like Huang Chung, bigger and smaller, and many districts like Gnai Sai.If you are looking for some relatives with a surname Wong (or Huang, Wang etc) you will probably find someone there, since you pinpoited Huang Chung village, which will narrow your search tremendously. Good Luck
