Looking for my Grandfather who had to leave Samoa to go back to China, he took with him my Uncle Sonny, who was the youngest at that time and left behind his eldest Daughter, and unborn son (my father). I think he left Samoa around 1940.

I am also doing research for my grandfather. His name in Samoa as my mother knew it was Ah-Chew or Ah-Kew. He left Samoa at about 1939 or 1940 when my mom was about 9 or 10 years old. She was born in 1930 and her father was a farm worker at the Mumu Arps farm at Alafua. We don't know where in China did he come from or return too. Your grandfather probably know my grandfather and might have been on the same boat back to China. Any information please let me know and I will do the same in return. My name is Eveni Tafiti and I live in West Valley City, Utah.

I am looking for Ah Yau who was buried in the Siusega Chinese Cemetery 1952. Ah Yau is really a nick name or part of a name. The Chinese Consulate in Samoa said they would help find information, if we had the complete name. I am afraid Ah Chong is a nick name or part of a name.
I found some general information in an informative article about the Chinese in Samoa - see http://wDragons in little paradise: Chinese fortunes in Samoa, 1900-1950 - mis

Thank you so much for the information that you have given, I will ask my dad if he remembers anything my dad was a baby or young boy when my grandfather left with my dads older brother going back to china. It was dad the youngest and his sister that was left behind in Samoa. If you wish you can email me if you like.

I think I posted the wrong dates in my earleir posting. My mother said that she was about 3 or 4 years old when her father was taken back to China. That would push the dates back to 1933, 35, or 35. My mother was born on July 9, 1930. Her father Ah-Chew was working at the Mumu Arps plantation in Alafua at the time. Any information on plantation lists, ship passenger lists, and any other information would be greatly appriciated. Thank you!

Our father never told us real name was Ah Chong.

Our grandfather's name is Fagatagu Ah Chong-just wondering if that name rings a bell or sounds familiar.

when our father past on our aunt in NZ said we have to use our real last name which was Ah Chong.

we sincerely want to here from you!
