HISTORY

In the year 1902, six men with the common surname of Wong (Huang), with roots in Zhongsan, China, and making their home in Hawaii, got together and founded the Wong Society, tracing their Wong common ancestral roots to the Jiang Xia Wong Kingdom in what is today's Hubei Providence, China, located on the banks of the Yangze River. Etched forever in the Hawaii annuals of the Wong Clan, they were Wong Chow, Wong Leong, Wong How, Wong Min Hoong, Wong Bat Ting (Wong Lum) and Wong Wing. They named the society Kong Har Gee Loo: Kong Har Home Away from Home (loosely, a clubhouse for the Wongs of Kong Har). The main purpose of organizing the society were for fellowship among the Wong clansmen in Hawaii, provide service to Chinese community, Hawaii's community at large, and our country, including doing charitable works.
