: My Grandfather Ah-Honi was an indentured labourer in Samoa in the early 1900s. He had 3 children 2 boys and a daughter. He returned to China in 1940. He was born in Canton China but I don't know his first name. My grandmother is still alive but is iliterate and has lost memories. She is very old. I would like anyones help who can help me solve this puzzle or give me some insight on where to start looking
I am in the same boat as you. My grandfather was also a labourer in the plantations in Samoa. He was taken back to China around 1940. My mother was born in 1930 and said her dad was taken back to China when she was 9 or 10 years old. My grandfather name was Ah-Chew. I don't know where he was born in China, but probably from the same place your grandfather came from. My grandmother's name is Fale Matofa Tavana, your grandmother might know her. If she does, she might know my grandfather too. Please let me know and keep in touch. I am still doing some research and you keep doing yours, we might find our grandfathers yet. They might be at the same village in China.
