Comments

Although this is under my name, it's David I have to thank for initiating this - his idea and his work in scanning and putting this all up.  Thanks, David!

Patricia 

You're very welcome - I've been thinking for ways to cooperate with authors writing about Hong Kong history. Posting the index seems a good way to show what's in the book and also attract visitors to Gwulo, so hopefully it is good for both of us. Fingers crossed other authors will let us post their index too.

Regards, David

David - please could you link Mrs Ramsey, Marion, daughter of William and Isabella Lysaught up to "Maria Ramsey" gwulo.com/node/34209 She was wife and then widow of Alfred Formosa Ramsey. Mrs Ramsey crosses into my Warren family landscape and I'm still on the look out for a possible reference to her in the newspapers or a Lysaught wedding photo in which she might appear.

Jill

Well spotted! I've added the link.
