The Gee Family represents the Gee clan of Houston. It is currently the largest and the most well-known Chinese-American network in Houston, Texas, USA. The Gee family network is built on the basis of a similar last name, Gee (Chinese character: 朱, pronounced zhū). The members of the Gee family in Houston may not necessarily be related by blood, but most of them are (?). Throughout the ... 20th century, the Gee family members that were already in Houston began supporting family members and non-family members alike in their attempt for immigration to America. The Gee family is a prime example of how a diasporic community retained certain aspects of the Chinese culture -- the natural affinity with people who share the same last name or place of origin -- but evolving along with the new culture that they are in, creating a hybrid way of life and diasporic culture that the family network shares.
