Chang Chock – My Paternal Ancestry
My father is Gordon Yen Hoi Chang MD. He married Jean Hanoi Wung.
His father was Ah Gett Chang. His mother was Pang Chock
I thought that I would blog about my explorations in finding information on my ancestry.
I had asked Mayblossom Wilkinson about the village we came from. She verbally talks about the village and county where Chock Sai Shee comes from. I tried to write it in English here.
Jung San Goo Hok cheun Kung seong doo
I found some maps and got ‘Geography of Kwangtung Province for Hawaii Residents’ here. Read it and it will tell you a lot about the villages etc. To find Goo Hok Cheun (village) in Kung Seong Doo #6 district may take some more research. The names have changed.
Such as Doo changed to Kee.
I think that one of the maps shows Goo Hok in the upper left of Kung Seong Doo.
I have to verify this.
Here are some maps of the area:
Jack Chang, eldest son of Chang Ah Gett,made and put a headstone for our Great Grandmother Chock Sai Shee at the Nuuanu Cemetary. She is buried in the Chinese Cemetary in Manoa.
