Research Visit Applications
The HKSKH Archives welcomes visitors to the archives who have
specific research needs and interests. Our
archival holdings are currently housed
in two locations.
1. The Hong
Kong Public Records Office (PRO)
An index to the Hong
Kong Sheng Kung Hui PRO holdings is available online. http://www.grs.gov.hk
For access to
records in the PRO, individuals must request permission in writing to the HKSKH
Archives, indicating the subject, nature
and purpose of research to be
conducted, and the name of the applicant’s supporting
institution (if any), and specify the file item levels, series or deposit no. of the records deposited with the PRO for your research. Subject to our Archives’ approval,
an authorization letter will be issued to facilitate further
research appointment of the applicants with the PRO directly. Please note that prior appointment must be made with the PRO before the applicants' visit to their Office for research.
2. The Bishop’s House Archives
In the Bishop’s House Archives, because
our time and personnel are limited, we can only accommodate a small number of
research visitors in any given week. Visiting hours are 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on
Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (except public holidays). If you wish to
apply to use the archives, please download the Archives Request Form on
this page. After filling it in, the form should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
It normally takes 1-4 working days for processing. Application
shall be made for all archives research in advance and applicant should come at
the appointment time arranged by our Archives. We are unable to
respond to offsite requests for photocopies and images.
