For anybody interested I have just put up a new website www.amanfromkarlshamn.com which tells the story of my great grandfather John Olson who arrived in Hong Kong around 1860 and died there in 1918.
A lot of the information has come through the expertise and knowledge of the Gwulo community and I would like to thank you all very much. David has been a tremendous help but those of you who have answered queries I have posted, or indeed posted relevant material, will recognise themselves I hope.
Thanks to you all and anything new will be appreciated and probably added as the new site evolves.
My other site www.thehongkonglegacy.com is still live but rather more dense than the new one.
