2009’s visit to the ancestral village in Jiangmen 江門 a province in Guandong/S China with a population of about 4.48mil where the ancestral hall and house still stand. An eye-opener trip which created more interesting work to be researched into. Future travels to S China and Borneo/E Malaysia will be necessary before embarking on a rough draft of the heritage trail – the never-ending trail starting from 1905 when her grand-uncle LAM JieChiew and grandfather LAM SongKee(1891-1950) started the family business as a mortgage company originally which resulted to banks, mines, properties, etc…

Colour pix of 4, 6, 8 & 10 visiting LAM TInYue(1911-1996) in SIN(1970s or 80s??).

With 2beautiful daughters Linn&May, 2wonderful son-in-laws Jeff&Bjørn, six adorable grandchildren #1Katy, 2Ellie, 3JohnW, 4Sophie, 5James (5 blonds & blue eyes in the US) and 6-Olai (finally one with darker hair and eyes in Norway!), life is blessed! They are part of her, thus making them a quarter of the Chinese ethnic race, but one can question&wonder about her ancestry???
