In June 2005 I visited my paternal ancestral village (Sun Wui, Gujing Town, Cheong Sah) which is a Seid village. I was told that the Anglicized surnames Seid, Sit, Seto and Soo Hoo (among others variation spellings) were all of the same bloodline hundreds of years ago in Northern China. A kiosk shrine was erected in my ancestral village commemorating the brotherhood of the Seid/Seto bloodline. A photo of this can be seen at http://www.seid.name/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-13 I also learned that a stronghold of the Seto Family Clan is located at Chek Hom in Hoiping County. I made a day trip there out of curiosity and took a photo of the plaque along the beautiful waterfront which commemorates the founding of Chek Hom by the Seto and Kwan family clans. The photo can be viewed at http://www.seid.name/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-14 (sorry, it's at a sideways angle).
