Wondered if anyone has run across these names in their research. My grandfathers name was Yee Kim Sue, born in SF, CA around 1893, died Boston, MA 1943. Wife Tom Shee. Parents Yee Kung Bue and Yong Shee, born in China. All this info is based on my grandfathers record of death. Noticed on this board that names could indicate what towns, provinces family came from?
Researching chinese surnames from this period is extremely frustrating and I wonder if anyone knows any chinese associations that I could join that could help me? I live near SF and will be attending the March 30th chsa workshop in SF. Any help or leads would be very appreciated!
