My father said that I am the 28th generation descendants of the Ming Dynasty. My maiden name is Gee which is the same Chinese character as the Zhu family. I was born in Burma and there is historical information of the southern Ming dynasty in Burma. My father says that the Gee Association in NYC has imperial documents linking them to the Ming Dynasty; they have yet to go through any of the documentation since it is a huge undertaking. Can any of this be true?
朱 is pronounced as Zu in mandarin and hokkien.
So where does this Gee comes from ? I think you mean ChÜ(german Ü) in cantonese
However, they did flee to Burma.

Perhaps you're taishanese or hakka. Do you know what chinese dialect you speak?
The reason why Taishanese and hakka share almost the same vocabulary is because we descended from central plains to southern china almost about the same period and preserved the chinese spoken during the song and tang dynasty period.
