This post simply records some web references on New England's Chinese for general reference, along with my own posts on the topic. As well as New Englanders, I think that Chinese whether overseas or in Australia along with Australians of Chinese ancestry - there are a lot - will find the material interesting.
The Chinese-Australian Historical Images in Australia (CHIA) database is a catalogue of historical images of Chinese, Chinese immigrants and their descendants held in Australia. You can search by town or name. The photos are great.
Golden Threads records the history of the Chinese in regional NSW in the period 1850-1950. Necessarily it has a strong New England focus simply because the Chinese were important in New England. The site includes a regional search facility along with a number of specific feature stories. Photo Kwong Sing store Glen Innes.
There is also a Chinese Australian Historical Society, although I have yet to follow them up.
