Welcome to my family blog

Welcome to the Oh (胡) Family blog. My name is Oh Chong Keat, my last/sur-name is Oh (胡) or Hu in Mandarin.

This blog is set up primarily to share my family history research and records. I hope to share this information with other family members as well as to open up opportunities to find out more about other ancestors.

My family resides primarily in the island of Penang, Malaysia or Malaya (in those times). My ancestors are from mainland China, specifically the province of Fujian.

I really look forward to hear from other relatives, and if you see any connections, please feel free to contact me.
