Found out alot about my own ancestry today.
I am the 28th generation of the 蓝 family. My grandfather was of the 26th, my father the 27th, and my kids the 29th.
This means that the 蓝 sirname has existed for more than 700 years! Back to during the Ming dynasty!
My paternal grandfather was from Dabu County (大埔县), which is a district of Meizhou, Guangdong province of China. To narrow it even further, he was from HuLiao Township (湖寮镇). Read more here!
My paternal grandmother was from Pontianak, Indonesia. Read more here!
It's always so interesting to find out more about our ancestry and history!
