My great great grandfather's name was Alex Chin-a-fat he was born in Hong Kong and then he came to Guyana (alone) and his wife's name was Jane Agard (he met her in guyana). I don't know too much about him or my chinese ancestry to honest but I would to know and learn more. So if anyone knows any information about the last name Chin-a-fat please feel free to contact me. Im not sure how common that last name is, but my family is mixed with African/Indian/European...so you can kind of understand why Its hard to find information.

Thank you for having this web page. Im looking through the lists of Chinese who came to work in Guyana in the 1880s trying to find a SUE as my grandfather's last name was Sue. So thank you for all your work in putting these names online.

A very commendable treatise on Chinese history / lineage /heritage in British Guyana. It is a fascinating story for anyone wanting to find out about indentured labor in British Guiana. I personally found answers to questions I have had for many years!!
I encourage all to access the guest book.....you never know who you will find or who may find you!!

You have created very thorough and valuable information about the Chinese of Guyana. I found it to be educational and also touching, something like walking back into history and imagining all those who came and their journey. Thank you.
