My family had their roots in Swatou, in the Guangdong province of China. Born into a wealthy merchant family, my great-grandfather Tan Yoke San and his brothers would make frequent trips to Nanyang for business. It was during these business expeditions that my grandfather Tan Swee Kan accompanied my great-grandfather and his brothers to Singapore, to learn the ropes of the business.  He eventually started his own business on his own, a printing company called Sing Chew Press located in High Street. It was in December 1952 that Tan Swee Kan decided to send for the rest of the Tan family to settle down in Singapore.   The stories and pictures of the rest of the family can be found in the following pictures
