Although I am not of Longdu ancestry, I do know that they account for a large of proportion of the Zhongshanese people living overseas. The following links contain information on various Longdu associations in the US (for those interested).
In regards to å—é , I assumed it was part of Longdu because according to this www.c-c-c.org/villagedb/display.cgi?level=Heung&id=381 , å—é is part of "Area 2" which is of course ç¬¬äºŒå€ also known as éš†éƒ½/éš†éŽ®. Was å—é one of the Yue-speaking villages that was administered by Longdu?
æ‘å§”æœƒ is just like sub-heung in "c-c-c db". Many smaller villagers UNDER "that". (Those small village often in æ²™æºª which confese me/douglaslam ) When have spare time, i will finish the "comapre & re-list" project The materials are: c-c-c db/ (1989) åœ°åå¿—/ è¥¿é„‰æ‘åæŒ (Jul 91- ä¸å±±åƒ‘åˆŠ) For example åµç”°: å¤§åµ (æŽ)/ ç”°é | æ¸¯åœ’: æ¸¯é / å¡”åœ’
From my rusty memory: There was an article in "ZS daily"'s site (pre "zsnews.cn" text only days) The story is something like: Village chief (OR some high ranking offical )'s wive I don't remember exactly is a "outsider" from Canton. She HATE & don't understand the language & banned the "PURE" dialect in village.

On 4th. October the Chungshan Society of Australia celebrated its 30th anniversary. On this significant day, we also celebrated the centenary of the 1911 Xinhai Revolution and the completion of a makeover and extension to the club house. This is the narrow frontage of the club house. One Chinese character is missing from the building. The premises is typical of the early inner city semi-detach. Though we the Chungshan people, are well represented in the state of New South Wales, we never had a proper meeting place called our own. From online records, there was an ad hoc society going back to 19th century, and meeting were held in one of the emporiums. Thirty years ago, a group of activists saw the need to rally the compatriots and initiated a drive to raise money for a club house. The same building now would cost considerably more.

Representatives from our home county came expressly to offer their congratulations and join in the celebrations. In the evening, we have a big dinner party, with a good sprinkling of politicians amongst other official guests.
This is the main hall on the ground floor. Naturally, Sun Yat-sen takes centre stage for he is our most famous son, to whom our county is named after. The frame across the top is a reproduction of Dr. Sun's calligraphy proclaiming the World is for All.
My congratulations to the Chungsan Society of Australia on this important occasion and the marking of a major milestone in the development of the Chungsan folks in Australia. To have your own meeting place is something special.
