Family name: Choy Given name/s: Ah Long Alternative spelling of family name: Coi Name at time of arrival in Australia: Ah Long Place of birth: China Date of birth: c. 1883 Date of arrival: Probably before 1901. He was able to purchase land so I assume he was domiciled. State/Territory of arrival: NSW State where first lived in Australia: NSW Government assisted migration?: No Was Australian citizenship obtained by the person?: No What records about this person are you looking for: Naturalisation (citizenship) records Would you like to: be sent a quote for a copy Tell us more: Earlier request as NAA1000089244. 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.
