Profile for user BrendaCox:

I recently published a book about Henrietta  and Lewis Shuck. Henrietta was the first American woman missionary to China, the first to open a school for girls, and the first Western woman to reside in Hong Kong. I am particularly interested in any images or information about the churches they established on Queens Road or the school they built. The churches were the Queens Road Baptist Church and the Swatow Baptist Church. Any and all images and information about life in Macau or Hong Kong in the late 1830s and early 1840s would be appreciated.

Hello, my name is Cherie Ryan nee Kirk. My grandmother, Faith Kirk married Dr Edward Kirk, my aunty (on my mothers side) has completed our family tree which is how I am finding out a lot of our family history, would love to know more information about my 'step' grandfather. I hear he was a very admirable man which is why my father and his two brothers had their surname changed to Kirk. Edward took on my father as his own son and I would love to know more, thank you

Born and raised in HK by USA parents 1955- 1973... No one in USA/Hawaii believed I was from Hong Kong so I had an official HK stamp in Chinese and English tattooed on my left foot's sole.... "Made in Hong Kong" ... when showed people would ask. "Where did you get that????" I would reply... " you don't have MADE IN USA on yours ????"

Chose Hawaii too live in as we have great Dim Sum and not all are Gwai Lohs...
