: My dad left China with an older brother- both teenagers in the 1910's; they worked on the plantations of Trinidad. Later, my dad made his way to the US, settling in NYC. At age 49, he finally married mom in Hong Kong through a matchmaker's introduction; they married in HK, my mom immigrated to NY, and they made a family in NYC. Dad died in 1984 at age 77. By deduction, i know that Dad's brother married a native and stayed in Trinidad. I've never met or had contact with these descendents.
If you want to contact your cousins in Trinidad, I may be able to help. Email me.
