: Hi Yvonne,
I am also in Australia, I am researching my family and have an Uncle Way Kee that was in Sydney NSW in the late 1800's. Maybe there is a connection.
Hoping to hear from you.
: : : My last name seems to be very rare. Is there anyone out there with my last name? Does anyone know the origin of my surname?
: : Hi, I am afraid I don't know much about the origin of the name, but I do share it - although I've just discovered that there was no 'Kee' in my great grandfather's Chinese name, even though he was known as Chung Kee here in Australia.
: : Regards My brother is name Kee Wah Youk
: : Chris Kee and he share the surname chou so my name is Mee Lim and in chinese it would be chou mei ling . youk is my father first name .....youk denotes who was the father in english the fathers first name becomes the last but in chinese the surname is used chou by the way youk meansd jade my fathers name was jade .so i bet your grandfather 's name was Kee chung but thier should be a surname
