It’s the perfect time to celebrate family

Christmas is a time to celebrate family. So, why not give the gift that is not only about family, but about your own family. Jamaican Chinese Worldwide – One Family or The Red Book, as it has been affectionately called, is the perfect gift to give a parent, your children or a cousin.

Mr. William Chin Len Kow and his family, one of the pioneer settlers, arrived in Jamaica in 1895. He is one of the three people who bought the Chinese cemetery for the community in 1901 and was a founding father of Chee Kung Tong. This is an example of one of the photos you will find in this book.

It is a wonderful reference book detailing the history of the Chinese migration to Jamaica between 1854 and 1884 and the lives lived on the island nation between the 1950s to the 1970s . It is a fantastic record of hundreds of families and it illustrates the amazing fact that we are all somehow related.

Enjoy your Christmas and let the story telling begin!
