History

The Tung Jung Association was founded in 1926 by the Chinese who immigrated to New Zealand from the Tung Gwoon (Donguan) and Jungsen (Zengcheng) (hence "Tung Jung") districts in the Guangdong province in Southern China.[1]

All Chinese whose ancestry are from the counties of Tung Gwoon (Donguan) and Jungsen (Zengcheng) in Guangdong province in China are invited to apply for membership to the Association.[2]
