I am doing some research for my family history. Here is what i have so far, hope it helps!

Teochew /Teochiu/chiuchow/ chaozhou originated from the Chaoshan region of Guangdong province, China. Teochew is also spoken in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Teochew is a dialect of Southern Min, a Sinitic language.
