I am seeking information about

The last known address for my Mother, around May 1961 was
Unmarked hut, Melon/Papaya Garden, Kam Shan Village, Tai Po.
- I have 3 half siblings from my Mother and her first husband’s marriage. An elder brother and two elder sisters. Probably all aged 60 years or older. Probably all surname of Wong.
- My father was a man called Wong Tin. He left my Mother just before I was born as his wife appeared from Mainland China with their children. So I also seek Wong Tin and these half siblings. They too probably have the surname Wong.
