Hello, Very interesting topic, thanks for the listing. I am a student and I am trying to list the main Chinese huiguan in Melaka. I know the Hokkien, Hakka and Hainanese associations are all located along Jalan Hang Jebat. I'm still looking for Teochew and Cantonese associations in Melaka: Are there any? Does anyone know their address or contact ? It would be of great help, thanks in advance for any information you could provide.
Hi Joe, my name is Boyle and I'm from Singapore and new to this forum. Your post #3 mentions proper burial for overseas Chinese who died alone in a far away land like Malaya, that's what happened to my great-great grandfather about 100 years ago. I'd like to locate his tomb but the information I have about him is very limited. I have his name, the village he's from, the place he died (in Penang due to a bad accident) and buried but I do not know the exact year his passed on. Is there any kind of help I can sort from any person, clan or association?
Did you ever find out the answer ?
We shall pass this way but once All the good that can be done do it now. For we shall not pass this way again
It will be a sad news if indeed the Toisan Association in KL is no longer in operation. I have fond memory of the place, even if I did not then understood what Toisan or indeed Siyi was all about, not that I am any wiser, but at least I have made the journey home, to my Ancestral Home in Hoiping, which in the old old days, was within the jurisdiction of Toisan, and we happily acknowledged that we were "Toisan people". I hope they have leased the place out, but the Association is still in operation.
These are basically newspaper inserts at the time of the events, which sometimes contain biographical data.

msen: Hi Sis, and welcome to the forum. As you know, I recently returned on a long journey from Florida to see one of our American cousins, sadly, in hospice. Her wish was to reconnect our family and visit with as many as could make the trip to her bedside.

msen: Oops, I guess i will continue in shoutbox, but merely wanted to reply to you! Long story short, her wish came true and now we have, thanks to forum friends, our village and some names in our father's family. Shout out to Laohuaqiao, FayChee and forum.
