He is mentioned in all the Jurors Lists from 1910 to 1922 (we're currently working on 1923), except for the lists for 1911 & 1915. Any ideas if he was away from Hong Kong for those two years?
Arne Schou-Sørensen was CIO of the norwegian shipping company Thoresen's department in HK. I believe their office was in the Queens building on Connaught rd. He travelled a lot between the different departments around Asia, and worked for periods for the company's main office in Shanghai. He also went home to Norway for some holidays. I am working on a book project about the time my family spent in HK and the sourrounding region. I would of course be very interested to get in touch with others who might have relating photo material or any relevant information. I will add more information together with more pictures. For the time being I have no certain record of where ASS was in the two years mentioned. But I may find the answer from his letters.
By the way, I have just started uploading pictures, there are a lot more to come as soon as I have figured out how the system works. I guess I have to create a private library to place the photos in? I am a bit confused still about whether the pics are connected to my user or to the person I created, (ASS)? I also created ID for his wife, Severine. Is it common to create a personal ID also for each of their children? That doesn't seem neccesary to me, or what?
I've made a gallery for you: 1910s-1920s Schou-Sørensen family photos and put your existing photos in the gallery. If you choose that gallery for future uploads, it will group all your photos together.
Then we can use the "shows Person" connection just to link photos to the actual person shown.

If you expect to start adding photos and information about them, it's good to have their own page. But if they just get a brief mention and the majority of information is about the parents, then no need.
Thanks, just what I needed :-)
