Chinese Genealogy Workshop

August 10, 2015 - August 13, 2015

The workshop serves as a primer on the basics of Chinese genealogy. It instructs attendees on how to use these fundamentals to advance their own research and discover the interesting information pertaining to their family / clan history and to identify those resources that can best serve them. There will also be an introduction to the various information, material, and tools available on the Internet and in books and other sources to assist in compiling and documenting Chinese lineages. The ancestral villages of attendees will be identified and located – the primary source for family genealogy books.

This is a “how to” workshop that educates you on what you need to know in order to start performing Chinese genealogical research. The intent of the workshop is to educate people about Chinese genealogy research – so they can start researching and compiling their Chinese genealogy lineage – without having to be Chinese literate. Some of the Chinese narratives, lineage annotations, and histories do require translation.

This event is co-sponsored by Si Yi Forum, Chinese Historical Society of America, City College of San Francisco.
