HistoricalDaughter Robyn Hardy wrote on 26 June 2010:
“My late husband and I went to Hong Kong early 1965. My husband was Chinese, so we came to help out with my father in-law’s business. As it happened, I got a very good job with the Australian Trade Commission and stayed there for quite awhile. We ended up staying and living in Hong Kong (loved it) until late 1978.

“I brought my mother and father over for year’s stay, but unfortunately that same year my mother passed away. A few years later, when we found out that my father was ill, we decided it would be better for him to be in Hong Kong with his family. We knew that he only had months to live and, as I had no brother or sister, at least he was with me and the family.”

Robyn wrote again on 25 July 2010:
“Both my parents were born in Australia. My father’s family came over from Europe – actually they came from England as they went from Poland to England and were there for a couple of years. They did not all come together, but eventually they all got here with the exception of one who lived in Paris. We are not too sure of where he is and I am still trying to find out.”
