There was an article about the history of the Tsung-Tsin
Association of NY in one of last year's Hakka Monthly
issues from Meizhou (I can't remember -- I think it
was 1996 April). I have a photcopy, so it's pages 49
and 15. It started in 1918 in Brooklyn as "ren2 he2 fang2"
before moving to Manhatten in 1921 and changing to
its present name, and details stuff until 1994.
I can fax you the photocopy. It's all in simplified Chinese,
of course :-).
I know there are Tsung-Tsin Associations in Vancouver BC,
and San Franciso, and a Basel church in Vancouver also.
In the Dallas-Austin-Houston area, there's a Kejia Tong Xiang Hui,
mostly Taiwanese Hakka.
I hope this helps,
