: Hi Lisa, Thanks for the response. I still need your help on tracing my family members - The LOKs all over the world. I'd gone to Guan Dong in 1990 but I'd no clue what so ever. Most of the people there couldn't speak English. Some talked Cantonese to me but I know only very few words. How to get to Bao An? How do you know that Lok means camel, not six, happy or land? Please tell me. I'm alien to my ancestor's language and custom. I don't really know whether or not the surname is written on the grave because I don't know how to read the chinese script. Help me again. Please, if possible inform other LOKs to write something to me at my email address. All messages must be in English. I'm Western Educated. B.A in Iowa, Masters in Malaysia. Thanks once again.

Lok could will be "happy" also. If you can take a photo of the gravelstone, email it to me and I'll tell you which is which. Gary Locke, Governor of Washington State, traces his root to Taishan, Guangdong. Some area may have a large contingent of a particular surname. But overall Chinese surnames are exactly localized.
