Launching the new "Preserve and Share –– Tung Wah Museum Archives" website
The "Preserve and Share –– Tung Wah Museum Archives" website has been launched (www.twmarchives.hk). In the first stage of the website launch, three main collections namely "Tung Wah Museum Archives Catalogue", "Tung Wah Museum Historic Photos" and "Tung Wah Coffin Home Archives" are introduced. The archives index of the museum can be retrieved under the "Tung Wah Museum Archives Catalogue" and will be updated on a regular basis. The Group photos of the Board of Directors from 1918 to 1950, and some event photos of the Board of Directors from 1951 to 1955 are demonstrated under the "Tung Wah Museum Historic Photos" section. For "Tung Wah Coffin Home Archives", the Office has chosen 300 correspondences from the Museum's collection which were sent to TWGHs either by overseas Chinese organizations or individuals around the world during the late 1920s to 1930s requesting for the bone repatriation service. Bilingual text versions of these correspondences will also be uploaded at a later stage. In addition, updated news and articles of the archives will be released in the "Archives Bulletin" section from time to time.
