Heading to the Encontro 2019 in Macau?

Hello,

Since my family is of Macanese descent, I'm heading to the Encontro in Macau in a couple of weeks. It's held every 3 years to help preserve Macanese hertitage. I was just curious to know if anyone here is also attending. I think they get about 1,000 attendees from all over the world, on average.

Thanks,

Allison 

 

 

 

Macau, 1917, The Hongkong, Canton and Macao Steamboat Company, Limited.

Charles Gesner van der Voort worked for Holland-China Trading Company (HCHC) in Shanghai. This photo shows one of its first directors, Willem Kien, standing at the quay in Macau. 

On the photo, a steamer is about to board in Macau. The workmen are ready to connect a walking bridge, there is a crowd at the quay and a line of passengers waiting to board. It looks like the photo was taken from the arriving ship.

Divorce proceedings in Hong Kong and Macau

David has suggested I start a separate Forum thread, instead of tacking my question about divorce cases in post-invasion Macau http://gwulo.com/comment/33461 on to the end of McCaskie’s June 1942 report of conditions in wartime Macau. Although my question concerns a member of my Hong Kong family, I meant to ask a more general question about the possible transference of Hong Kong law suits to Macau after the Japanese invasion.
