Looking for a long
lost Grand Uncle in China
Weissenbruch, Arnold in 1928
Around 1976 my late Grandmother mentioned that I have a late Grand Uncle by the name 黃承謙in China. He was the eldest brother of my late Grandfather.
His last known
village was in “Bu-ji” Town, south of Guangdong Province
(廣東省 寶安縣 深圳市 布吉鎮).
|According to 'Wong Family History' by Christopher Wong :
In between 1975-1977 one day during a casual conversation with Grandma, Phang Lien Yin, she mentioned of Wong Shin Chiang's long lost brother "....you have a Suk-Kong (Grand-uncle) 黃承謙 in XXX Island............for many years we received letters from....we wrote letters to him............latter on we lost contact with each other........"
She also mentioned the name of the country "Fiji"
