Since the mid-19th century, many Chinese people travelled abroad to earn a living in hopes of improving their livelihood. They all wished to be buried in their hometown after they died. In this light, Tung Wah provided bone repatriation services to fulfil the last wishes of many overseas Chinese. Many records of this legacy have been preserved. Today the archives yield invaluable information for the research on Hong Kong’s role in a global Chinese philanthropic network and they are indeed world class cultural heritage unique to Hong Kong. The speaker will introduce the Tung Wah Coffin Home Archives and their importance, conservation and future challenges.
