ChinaGenWeb - Ancestor Questions and Last Names

Chinese character software


Queries and Surnames

IMPORTANT! - Please read ALL instructions and the example.


An automated international query and last name system is in use. Please follow all directions.

  1. Write ALL family names in CAPITALS.
  2. Let researchers know : WHO you are searching for, WHICH province, or nearest Chinese city, and WHEN they were in China.
  3. Many researchers do not know the names of the towns, past or present; so, list the places as "Village, nearest City, Province, etc."
  4. Remember, your question or family name must indicate a connection to China.


Looking for CHOI Joe Sung b. 1886 in Canton (Guanzhou), Guangdong Province, China. He married SHEE Sam, and had eight children. In 1930 he and his eldest son, SHEE Joe Kum moved to New Zealand. SHEE Joe Kum left eight children in China. SHEE Joe Kum died in South Auckland, New Zealand in 1995 and CHOI Joe Sung died in South Auckland, New Zealand in 1961. I would like to correspond with anyone interested in exchanging information on this family. Carol WHYTE (

NOTE: The query and last name system will cross-link last names with other databases.
