The suggestions given were too early. Has the material that is not indexed in RecordSearch been checked - probably 1930's. Response: Thank you for your inquiry regarding naturalisation records relating to Ah Long Choy. We have searched our naturalisation indexes (1904-1991) but unfortunately have been unable to locate any records relating to the naturalisation of Ah Long Choy. We are not able to definitely state that Ah Long Choy was not naturalised, but there are no records to suggest that this was the case. As search was also made using the alternate spelling of surname with the same result.
