Che Kung Tong no.12

Here is an old picture which stands in the halls of the Grand Lodge of Monterrey in Nuevo León, México. This are some of the Chinese founding members, one of the them my Grand Grand Father :) (which im still not sure who is he hahahaha it is a very old picture and cant recognize him at all, plus i only have 1 photo of him) Che Kung Tong no.12 was founded on April 29, 1906 under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Monterrey; my Grand Grand Father was Worshipful Master in 1929.

      Che Kung Tong is not Freemasonry. They are just a Chinese secret societies(Han based), brotherhood or gang.

      @TerWM that is true: it appears it was a gang many years ago who smuggle people into México. Cant say grand grand father was part of them. The only think i know is that he "escaped" from China, but he is the greatest secret in my family. He was part of a masonic lodge in china, not sure if this photo is the remains of them. He traveled many years and then married my grand grand mother, and they went from the state of Tamaulipas to Nuevo Léon where they contacted the grand lodge of Monterrey and created the chinese lodge with this name. But like i said, hard to say if they were part of the gang or not.

      @deministri Grand Lodge of Monterrey? Is it still exist? I cannot find it on the rolls of the UGLE of recognised Grand Lodges. If you want to trace some history about Chinese lodges, I can try to look it over for you.

      Regarding the Grand Lodge of Monterrey, it is not the first comment i receive about the UGLE list, actually i dont know what is that hahaha but my guessing is that probably we need to work with the international communication :(
