My root 我的根

In March 2008, with a cousin, I went to visit my ancestral home in Gozhou, Guangdong Province of China. A section of more than 100-year old house where my father stayed and grew up are still standing. My father left this house at the age of 15 to then Malaya to seek a better life.

Few of my cousins still stay in this house. My father's sister passed away a year before my arrival... the only source of a first-person information about my father is lost!

Blog postings were written on this trip, but ... tragically, I have deleted by accident a year of my hard work in May 2008 ...... See I lost my account



我曾在部落格上详细的记载这次行程,但不幸的,在2008年的5月,不小心的给删除了。一年多劳力就此消失。。。 可参看我的户口不见了



My ancestral tables, more than 100 years old。 No matter how many generations, Malaysian Chinese can traced back to ancestry in China. If no, it is own denial or rejection, not because of non-existence.

Some are proud to acknowledge their root is in Henley Street, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire or Buckingham Palace, England ....or better still, in Israel !
