Hi Kim Ear,
My name is Susan Ear and I wanted to respond to your ziplink postage on Jan. of 1998. I am unsure if this
is still your email, but it's definitely worth a try.
Like you, I have always wanted to learn more about my chiu-chow and "ear" origin. I spoke to my mother
recently regarding the peculiarity of our name. She told me that there is actually a "Ear" village in China (I
believe in the Guangdong province). A friend whom I have also met at Cal (Sophal Ear- I refer to him as
my long lost brother) also told me that chiu-chow's are known to be entrepreneurs - setting up small
businesses (particularly Chinese Fast Foods - like my parents and all my relatives).
I know a little bit more about my origins in terms of how my parents came to the US - but it may not pertain
to your family. Did your parents come from Cambodia or Vietnam or Thailand?
Ouh haou hee because ouh jai ooo bach gai teo jui nang.
