Your information provided is somewhat sketchy. First, I am surmising that both your parents are Chow's since your maternal grandfather is a Chow. Secondly, find out Miguel Chow's Chinese name if possible. Also, do you have any old letters he may have received from Hong Kong or China? Do you know where he is buried? Here are some suggestions on possibly furthering your research. Find a Chow family clan association in Los Angeles and seek out whatever information they may have on your maternal grandfather, Miguel Chow. I believe Chow is a Cantonese name, so Miguel Chow's ancestors are likely to have origins in Guangdong Province, perhaps Taishan County, before migrating to Hong Kong. Finally, take a look at various Chow family trees for any possible connections to your clan at the following website: http://www.legacy1.net/sitemap.html
Good luck on your search.
