This is a collection of stories of 14 families of different ancestry, whose forefathers migrated to Southeast Asia from southern China in the last two centuries. Despite suffering severe hardships, troubles brought about by natural disasters, political unrests, social injustice and inequalities in China and the atrocities of two world wars, they survived and prospered in their country of adoption. They also found abundant life in the Christian faith. Among the families featured are the ancestors of Polar Puffs & Cakes, Wing On and the Yeo Hiap Seng group.
