Welcome to the Tung Jung Association of New Zealand
The Association was founded in 1926 by the Chinese who immigrated to New Zealand from the Tung Gwoon (Dongguan) and Jungsen (Zengcheng) hence Tung Jung, districts in the Guangdong province in Southern China.
This web site gives an overview of the history and the people who founded the Association and an insight into the work of the Association at the present time.
We hope that this web site will stimulate interest in the Association and in the history of the Chinese in New Zealand.
All people whose ancestry are from the counties of Tung Gwoon (Donguan) and Jungsen (Zengcheng) in Guangdong province in China are invited to apply for full membership to the Association.
People who do not qualify for full membership but wish to partake in the activities of the Tung Jung Association are welcome to apply for associate membership to the Association. However, the constitution does not allow voting rights for associate members.
Associate members may have ancestral homes outside of the Tung Jung area, and do not need to have any Chinese ancestry.
