Today’s episode of Research Like a Pro is about Chinese Ancestry. We talk with Linda Yip, author of the website Past Presence and the new book, Getting Started in Chinese Genealogy. Linda tells about how to research Chinese ancestors in Canada or the United States. She also teaches us about Jiapu, Chinese clan genealogies and how they can stretch back 24-36 generations. We review the laws and history for Chinese immigrants and how that affected the records created. Linda shares about her experience at the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy in the Chinese Ancestry and Genetic Genealogy courses. Links https://past-presence.com/...
