Funny how things happen… discovering distant family members you never
knew you had. In 2000, we planned a family reunion for the
descendents of Rev. Chan Yu Tan, my great-great-grandfather who came to
Canada in 1896. We discovered the descendents of his elder
brother Rev. Chan Sing Kai who had arrived in 1888, and their younger
sister Naomi – both whom had moved the United States.
Janice Wong introduced herself on e-mail to me last month, as the niece of my grandmother's cousin in Victoria. She is a visual artist
and shares with me a deep interest in Chinese Canadian history. And…
she has written a cook book based on family stories and recipies.
I can hardly wait to see the book… and to meet her too… of course!
Book launch will be October 12th at Sylvia Hotel, Vancouver BC.
