Taishan 台山 and Kaiping 开平, Guangdong 廣東 - China (17) April 2009

Wing Wah Village 永華, of Baishui 白水, Taishan, is my wife's mother's ancestral home village, with members surnamed "Hom" or "Tan 譚."
Many came to the US as part of the southern Guangdong diaspora.
With her Grandfather's name in hand, we found the ancestral home and his name on a plaque as he donated to his village.
