Great work Trev.
I wrote here in 1999 (#57)and always return for a refresher and to imagine the life of my foreparents. My dad was Frank (chinese), mother is Cynthia (East Indian)both from Bagotville, West Bank Demerara. My dad had a weightlifting gym (Deluxe Gym) in Bagotville.I was born in Rose Hall Village, where my parents relocated and owned Leow's Restaurant. My dad passed when I was 4, and my mom continued the family business until she retired. i reside in NJ, USA with my precious wife (Guyanese-Afro) and daughter. I would love to know more about my foreparents. I was in touch with a Yvonne Leow living in Australia from Guyana, but we lost touch over the years. Would love to connect with anyone who would like to share info and even be friends.
God's blessings to you Trev and your precious family. Your hard work is not in vain.
Love, Elmo(Steve) Leow.

Hi,I am in search for my great- great grandmother's Chinese name. She came from China to Guyana with her parents and two other siblings but they changed her name to Juliana Joseph and her siblings were Josephine and Ahing and then the came to Trinidad. Juliana married Charles Richards and that is all we know so far. He died 1940 we believe she was 70yrs. Please if anyone has information on any Joseph's of Chinese decent please share and how the get her information in Guyana about the name change, it will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You so much in-advance

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/ you can kind of understand why Its hard to find information.
