  2. Hi Jen, I am also a descendant of Tan Kang Hock! Would be great if we could get in touch as a cousin of mine is currently working on a family tree project.

  3. I leant from my late uncle, Lee Eng Leong that his late father, Lee Soon Peng is one of Tan (Lee) Kang Hock children. Definitely interested to look up & connect with extended family members.
