Course Spotlight: Chinese Ancestry: Research Methods and Sources

Do you have Chinese ancestors but don't know where to begin? Or perhaps you work at a library or archive serving those with Chinese ancestral lines? This multi-week course will provide everything you need to know to get started. No prior knowledge of the Chinese language is needed.

Personal Research or Library Professional. This course is uniquely designed for the entire community of Chinese genealogy researchers. Components are meant to help both individuals seeking a deeper understanding of their family's past and professionals who work in archives or libraries assisting patrons with Chinese heritage. Regardless of your goals, this course will help sharpen everyone's skills in exploring the research methodology and available sources for Chinese ancestry.

Jaipu. Chinese Clan Genealogies, known as Jaipu, will be a major focus of the course. Students will be given the opportunity to learn to find these records and then examine and extract valuable genealogical data. Those individuals who may have their own Jaipu are encouraged to bring their own to work on (please notify the coordinator at the start of the course).

The full schedule for this course, faculty bios, and course details can be found here.
