Welcome to my professional research pages.
My name is Christine Thomas and I am a professional researcher covering Hong Kong and China

I have spent a forty year career with the Police in Hong Kong and London working in the fields of Research and Archival Records Management. I now run my own Research Service specialising in families who had British ancestors in Hong Kong, China and/or the Police. I am a member of AGRA.
I travelled to Hong Kong in 1975 and spent twenty magical years in the former British Colony. During that time my weekends were spent recording Memorial Inscriptions in the Hong Kong Cemetery. These date back to the 1840s and provide a wonderful insight into the history of the Colony. I am now supplementing this information with British burials in China.
When I returned to the UK I worked in the Archive Department of the Metropolitan Police where I gained an in-depth knowledge of the Met’s archival records.
Nothing gives me more pleasure than researching a family from the Far East
