Tracing paternal family in Putian; Lim Ah Boon, born circa 1927
Posted by: Fiona Lee (ID *****8716) Date: April 22, 2009 at 22:49:08

I'm trying to trace my paternal family tree, which originates in Putian- or at least, my grandmother came from there. Her name is Lim Ah Boon, but I'm not sure about her siblings', or even her relatives' names. As far as I know, she's not really on good terms with her family, and the only relatives I see her communicate with are an occasional cousin or two. So I guess they're probably either estranged or dead.

Her birth date isn't clear, but it should be January 1927 or thereabouts. I've tried asking my father and my grandmother on this, but results have been pretty mixed so far- my father doesn't really know anything about my grandmother's family, and my grandmother doesn't really like talking about her family; even when she does, because of language barriers, it's hard to understand what she's saying, so.

Any help here would really be appreciated!
