Hi, my name is Steve, born as Yeo Tjong Hian in Cirebon, Indonesia. My great grandfather is named Yeo Tjeng Kang and lived in small town named Jamblang, 15 km from cirebon. From my uncles and aunts, I know that my great grandfather had an older brother (or halfbrother) named Yeo Tjeng Hay, lived in Singapore. When I was visiting Singapore several years ago, I was feeling down, because there are so many 'yeo' name in phonebook there. As long as I can remember, a younger brother of my grandfather named Yeo Kiem Pwee studied in Singapore and lived at his uncle home when he was young (before 2nd WW). He (Yeo Kiem Pwee) mentioned also that his cousin (son of Yeo Tjeng Hay) bear also his first two name (Yeo Kiem ....).
Now is the generation of grandfather passed away, I don't know to whom I have to ask, because my uncles and aunts also can not remember.
May be someone in Singapore can help me ?
