: I know of a Lok family they are originally from Bao An (I think it's a county) in Guangdong. If your grandfather was Cantonese more than likely his surname Lok is the same as the one for camel.
: These are the only Loks I know. I don't think it's that common. Here it's very common for the gravestones to have the persons name (characters) and village etc. Is it not the same there? If it is it might be a good place to start.
Hi.. Lisa, Thanks a lot for giving me some clues to trace my family members. I've been waiting for this kind of information for a very long time. Thanks once again. I'll be very grateful if the LOKs appear and say something about my confusion and long search for my chinese family all over the world. My dad had told me that before my grand father came to Borneo, he had worked in Singapore. He worked at Api-Api (Jessolton at that time, now Kota Kinabalu) temporarily before leaving for Kudat. Then settled at Pitas. Please send me more clues if possible.
