My father’s house, Zhongshan, China.
21 Apr 2018
Description

This is the place I connected back with my long lost father after 48 years. 

From here, I learnt about my ancestors, walked the surrounding streets and heard the story of his mother, my grandmother, saving two young boys from starvation during the war with Japan, saw my great grandfather’s house, now a ruin, and went to the ancestor house filled with photos and family trees of the local community. 

 

Adopted at 7 years old, growing up in Sydney; I never expected to find my 95 year old father living in Brisbane, and be able to visit with him, the family home in China!
