Sun Wei County Roots of Delta Chinese

Posted by John Jung on June 5, 2011 at 7:45 PM

Raymond Seid, originally from Greenville, just returned from a month-long stay in Sun Wui, one of the 4 Sze Yup Counties/Districts in the Pearl River Delta of Guangdong Province in China. Thanks to Raymond for pointing out in his post on the Facebook page for Delta Chinese that,

"Much is mentioned in this blog about the Mississippi Delta Chinese having roots in Toisan or Hoiping County/District, but a number of Chinese Mississippians has roots in Sun Wui County/District as well."

Raymond urged that, "If not already included in its master plan, the Mississippi Delta Chinese Museum Project will not have come full circle unless some effort is devoted to the Sze Yup region from which most Chinese Mississipians have roots."
