: : I'm trying to find some info on my last name, spelled and pronounced "JEW" but it was Americanized when my grandfather came to the US in the 1930s. I believe it may have been "ZHOU" originally. I think he speaks the Cantonese dialect. Does anyone know anything about researching this name? Any help would be greatly appreciated

: Rebecca - My surname pronounced as you, if americanized become Jew . I think it as Zhou, Chow, Chiao, or Chu . I am vietnamese, origin from Chinese . In passport my surname is Cha^u , pronounced as Chow . Our surname is surname of Emperator Ming Dynastry in China . Maybe we are from Jew lost tribe to China in the last .
