Research Guide to Chinese Genealogy
Be sure to check out the Research Guide to Chinese Genealogy: 2nd edition. This workbook will show you the hands-on approach and where to look for Chinese family history with minimum Chinese language skills.
Many researches focus on using either Chinese or English language resources. Here are some of the important information you will need before you begin your family research project that helps you trace your root to China:
-Birth, death, marriage records - showing parents (surnames, birth place)
-Head Tax information
-Census records, Military record, Land Registry, etc ... in English
-Correspondences, photos, school records, church affiliation
-Family registry/records (Jia Pu or Zu Pu), Clan Association
Contact us for consultation to your research project or a virtual tutorial to Chinese genealogy workshop.
