Also, can anyone tell me what Hakka and teochiu speakers are usually called in China or Chinese...whenever I try to explainmy family history to Chinese speakers in America, they do not seem to quite understand (especially when it comes to TeoChiu).

: Wow...i just wanted to say I think this website is great. It is a great tool for many of us who have in one way or another been detached from our past.

: I am a student born and raised in Los Angeles, california by parents who were raised in Thailand, but have Chinese parents themselves.

: My Father tells me that our original family last name was Ng and that his family is TeoChiu. I believe his father migrated to Thailand around the 1st half of the 20th century.

: My mother on the other hand is Hakka and she told me her family name (before she married my dad) was Tang. I believe her father also migrated to Thailand during the 1st part of the 20th century.

: I am extreely interested in learning more about my family history, but it is hard since my parents know a somewhat limited amount, and all my grandparents have now passed on.

: This summer I plan to go to Thailand and may even get the oppurtunity to visit China. So that I amhoping I can somewhat trace my family roots, not only for my sake, but for the sake of my children and my future family.

: I think that knowing the family history is an extremely vital.

: Could someone please help me witha preliminary history of my family/family name if possible?
: and provde me with some leads that I might be able to follow?

: Thanks Much
