Throughout history China has kept detailed genealogies starting with inscribed oracle bones. Today, these printed clan genealogies provide comprehensive information on family lineages and bloodlines. A Chinese genealogy book is considered the holy grail and ultimate source for your clan information and history. Understanding how to interpret the information will provide a plethora of information and facts pertinent to your familys heritage.
