Can anyone help me with info on the Yow and Wong families?
Yow Chok Nee emigrated from Meixian to Mauritius around
1920 and Wong Kee Yan (and 2 brothers?) around 1945.
Wong is probably the same as Hwang in Mandarine.
Of the two Wong clans from Meixien I know, this
concerns the "Tai Tu Wong" clan (big yellow stomach).
What's the origin of these two names and what is known
about them? Also, what can be told about the historical
Meixian and the Meixian of today? Please help!
