Chong - Ahnee Family Pages Available

I am very happy to let you know that the Chong - Ahnee section of the website is ready for viewing! It's not quite done, but I have a feeling that all of these Branch sections won't be fully complete for a very long time... In the meantime, take a look at The Chong - Ahnee Family branch here.

Included are documents sent to me by the very nice people at the National Archives in San Bruno, CA back in 2004. Among many things, this precious packet contained passport pictures of my grandmother, Gladys (Chong) Tanigawa, at age 3, and a picture of her younger brother who died soon after the photo was taken. It also revealed the birth of another brother while the family was in China. The child, Soon Yen Chong, was left in China in the care of the mother of my great-grandfather, Fook Yee Chong.
