: First of all, Lee is a very big family name in china. About 8% of chinese have family name Lee or Li (in mainland china).

: Secondly, Canton usually refer to Guang Dong province in China. Canton also refer to the capital city of the province. Today the capital city is named Guangzhou.

: Third, Lee (Li) family are believed from northern part of China. Specifically from the yellow river valley area. This area is today's HeNan and ShaanXi province. Lee or Li people migrated to the Canton in Han and Shong Dynisties.

: Fourth, most cantonese live oversea are from the Pearl river delta area in GuangDong province. There is one big Lee branch live in Panyu County near Guangzhou (Canton). Today Panyu County is within the metro area of Guangzhou.

: I hope this will be some help.

: Is this a web site to make connection to the Le[a Vietnamese or French spelling], Lai or Li family from Panyu ,Canton? My family migrated to Colon,South Vietnam in the 1900 and then to U.S.A. in the 60's. Still have home in Panyu.
