Help with names

Post by yuminnan »


I have found a card with some text on it which is interesting for my family history.
It is send to Mr. 鍾福壽先生.
There is a name in the card two times. It is 郭大戇. In Mandarin the name is Guo Da Gang. Does anyone knows what the name could be in Hokkien? The family name is Kwik (郭).
And... what would be the Hokkien name for 鍾福壽?

Is it also possible for somebody to translate the text? There is also a date written on the card. Is it clear what date it is?
