Re: Chinese presence in Haiti

I have family in Montreal with the last name Fong-Ging (uncles and aunts). My grandmother is half Chinese. The family story goes that some time around the turn of the century, her father and uncle (my great grandfather and great great uncle) left Southern China for England. They then went to Jamaica, and finally ended up in Haiti. The story also goes they had a restaurant business. I am studying Chinese and I would really like to find the characters for their names. The last name definitely (I believe) Fong. Chinese last names are monosyballic.

If anyone is familiar with this story, please reply!
