    3. Hi Tim, I’m sorry I can’t help you since I live in Australia, and am not likely to go to Hong Kong in the near future. I hope you do find someone that can help.

    1. [HONG-KONG] Update on The Silver Bowl web site
    2. Sharon Oddie Brown
    3. Jacksons in China & India <http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/TABLES/JACKSONs-China&India.html>. (Mostly India) In this transcription, I primarily noted instances of the name JACKSON, but also of some of the known relations of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915). When I learn more about some of these people, I will annotate them. It is most likely that the Mrs. DARE mentioned was Sarah Shrieve PARKE (1817-1879) the mother of Amelia Lydia DARE (1851-1944) who was the wife of Sir Thomas JACKSON.

    1. [HONG-KONG] Family of Alexander Cole
    2. Deirdre Day
    3. Hi, Several people were very helpful when I was trying to track down Annie Jane Cole who died in Hong Kong on April 1, 1912. Now I'm wondering if there is any family of her husband Alexander Cole in Hong Kong. He was a herbalist and clairvoyant in Sydney, Australia, and had frequent trips to Hong Kong, and I suspect there may have been some family connection there. He was born in Sydney in 1858. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. Thanking you Deirdre Day deirdre.day@gmail.com

    3. Thanks Sharon for the Who's Who posting. Not sure if listers are aware of a new who's who recently published in Hong Kong? It's called "Dictionary of Hong Kong Biography" by May Holdsworth and Christopher Munn, published by Hong Kong University Press earlier this year, January I think. Truly an amazing amount of work and detail has gone into it many biographies have accompanying images too. Very comprehensive book. Best wishes Liz

    3. /This is a lengthy transcription of portions of this book - 21 pages of selected and annotated text. I have annotated all the entries that referred to men who had some sort of connection to Ireland. My purpose is that I am trying to learn more about the Irish Diaspora in the region during the late 1800s. If there was no known connection to either Ireland of HSBC, I did not include mention (or if I did - it was only because my nose twitched indicating some level of interest).//My hope is that others can shed more light on some of these men.

    1. [HONG-KONG] Recent additions to The Silver Bowl web site
    2. Sharon Oddie Brown
    3. I have recently updated my deeds data. It has links to hundreds of Irish families -- all part of me trying to learn about the JACKSONs of Urker. Since I also include notes of deeds that I find along the way that may or may not connect to my central interest, the data will interest others researching hundreds of other names, and other counties in Ireland. There are two ways of accessing this information. One way is through the index page which you can find at: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/Wills_and_Will_abstracts.htm The right hand column gives the date of the latest update. I have also made a pdf which includes brief abstracts of all the deeds in my research list, many of which have not yet been transcribed. There have been dozens of new additions to this document in the past month which have mostly (but not entirely) focused on JACKSONs and COULTERs. It is easy enough to search either by name or townland. For this pdf SEE: http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/html%20versions/2011/2011%20June%204%20version%20-%20Memorials%20of%20Deeds.pdf In the past month, I have also added dozens of new names as well as literally hundreds of updated entries to my Rootsweb family tree: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=silverbowl Although this tree started with JACKSONs, and there are hundreds of them in this tree, there are also thousands of other names, all connected in some way to the collateral relations of the JACKSONs in dozens of countries. Finally, there is my blog. Recent posts of interest include (amongst others): /Reading Irish History /-- which includes two book reviews: http://sharonoddiebrown.blogspot.com/2011/05/reading-irish-history.html /Facts and Theories/ -- which includes research tips and references to several JACKSON lines: http://sharonoddiebrown.blogspot.com/2011/05/facts-and-theories.html /Ngaio Marsh/ -- which links Hong Kong families to New Zealand, and Thomas JACKSON as well: http://sharonoddiebrown.blogspot.com/2011_06_01_archive.html -- Sharon Oddie Brown, Roberts Creek, BC, Canada.

    1. [HONG-KONG] New Deeds research
    2. Sharon Oddie Brown
    3. I have just posted a piece on my blog, that includes links to research where I have cobbled together what I can, and tried to make sense of it. Call it thinking out loud - in public. Since I can go no further on my own, I have posted what I have in the hopes that either someone else can make sense of it all, or else some parts of it will help someone else to break through their brick wall. Please let me know if either happen for you. It makes my day. This work that I am sharing in this piece focuses mostly on JACKSONs and memorials of deeds, but the JACKSONs had connections in just about every county, particularly in the Quaker and Protestant circles, but not exclusively in them. SEE: http://sharonoddiebrown.blogspot.com/2011/05/facts-and-theories.html NOTE: In the piece that I link to at the end of this post, there are also extensive footnotes about both Strettell and Lodowick JACKSON of Youghall, Co. Cork. As always, I appreciate hearing about errors of fact, typos, spelling mistakes - all my sins of omission and commission. Sharon Oddie Brown. -- Sharon Oddie Brown, Roberts Creek, BC, Canada.

    2. Sharon Oddie Brown
    3. A number of lists that I subscribe to have wrestled with the problem of how to share research with others, and even whether to share at all. This piece I have posted to my blog site is just me mulling about the whole question of sharing. Towards the end of it, I have a list of pros and cons. SEE: http://sharonoddiebrown.blogspot.com/2011/05/knock-knock-whos-there.html My next blog will be about how I learn from my mistakes, with a couple of pieces giving examples. Maybe I will finish the three of these pieces tomorrow, maybe the next day. Sharon -- Sharon Oddie Brown, Roberts Creek, BC, Canada. History Project: www.thesilverbowl.com
