:I went back to China... my grandfather village at somewhere around inside Canton. During the world war 2 my grand father come to Malaya..Now Malaysia. Last time China people call it Nanyang...well is Malaya. Now Malaysia. I wish to find out more about My Lam family who still reside in China.
Any more "woods" out there? Our Lem family came originally from Low Hong Fook village, Sun Wui county, Sze Yap district, Canton (Guangdong) province, mainland China. Grandfather came to U.S. in 1894, was in San Francisco until after 1906 (lived through the earthquake), Sacramento, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and finally Tucson AZ in 1917. He was a doctor of traditional Chinese medicine. Grandfather had a "first family" in China, and one son emigrated to Hawaii while another went to Hong Kong after his mother died in the 1920's during warlord incursions/famine. I have a lot of material and am willing to share, just e-mail me.
