Hello Edward, I am a fellow Malaysian. There are a lot of Wees . The prominent one is Singapore (still is?) president Wee Kim Wee and in Kuching one famous one is Datuk Amar Wee Hood Teck. I believe there are Wee Kongsi. Wee surname is the same as Ooi (Ipoh upwards till Kedah) and Ng (Perak down to Johore. The Ooi Kongsi is a clan association. Maybe you can register with them to find your roots. I am not sure Wee is Hokkien or Foochow people but Sarawak state sure has a lot of them. Keep searching.
: I'm a chinese Malaysian surnamed Wee. I would like to know the origins of my surname (huang/yellow). And if possible, I'd like to know if anyone would be related.
: The farthest i could trace was to Mr. Wee Hock Kee who migrated to Kuching from Riau Island of Indonesia. If anyone has any info about the Wee family or Yellow(huang, wong, ng...)
