I am second generation, in my mid-sixties, born & bred in Malaysia. My grandfather, SUNG YAM, came out to Malaya, as it was called then, and married a Straits-born Chinese lady, LIM YEW, from Penang. We in the family, believe he had another family in China, because he was already in his late 40s when he married. The information we got is that he came from Quemoy......I'm not even sure if it still exists. I would like to hear from anyone from that region.
