If you're new to Gwulo, we've got over 50,000 pages for you to explore! You can use the search box at the top right corner of every page to see everything we have on a given topic, or you can start with one of these popular sections:

  • Photos
    Gwulo has over 30,000 photos and images of Hong Kong, from as far back as the 1840s.
  • People
    These pages are often added by family-history researchers, sharing information about their ancestors who lived in Hong Kong, and hoping to hear from others who can add more details.
  • Places and maps
    If you're interested in historic buildings (whether surviving or demolished), or in old maps of Hong Kong, start here!

We've also got smaller collections of:

  • Books & Diaries - here you'll find memoirs and diaries written by people who had lived in Hong Kong.
  • Streets
  • Jurors Lists - a great resource for finding information about early residents of Hong Kong.
  • Organisations - companies, communities, regiments, etc.
  • Timelines - e.g. a timeline of typhoons in Hong Kong through the years

The Forum is the place to go for anything else that doesn't fit into one of the sections listed above.
