my name is isabel and i'm from the philippines. my maternal grandfather is of chinese descent. their real surname was supposed to be "ANG" only, but in the early times, people of chinese descent living in the philippines were requested to have a filipino word added to their chinese surname. so now, my mom's surname is already different, but what's funny there is that, most of my mom's relatives, especially her uncles can pass out for a chinese. and by the way, all my cousins from my mother's side look like chinese, including me. i just wanna' know if there's a way by which i would be able to trace our ancestry. i know that it's really hard, but i'm really eager to find out about our chinese ancestry. i'm you know of some way to help, please email me.
