DESCRIPTION

Chinese Family History Workshop

The Ming Ai (London) Institute in collaboration with My China Roots and Wood Green Library would like to invite you to our upcoming Family History Workshop specifically for those of Chinese descent.

Have you ever wondered where you're really from? Would you like to find out more about your Chinese ancestors, who they were, what their lives were like? Have you encountered a brick wall in your search for your roots, perhaps because your family no longer speaks or reads Chinese? Have you ever wondered about the place your ancestors came from in China, what is left of it, and if you still have relatives living there?

Join us for an informal workshop/discussion led by My China Roots officer Clotilde Yap, who will share some introductory tips on Chinese genealogy and how to get started tracing your Chinese ancestors. Participants will be invited to share their root-searching stories and experiences, and Clotilde will also be available to answer specific roots-related questions.

My China Roots helps overseas Chinese around the world to trace their ancestry, put their roots into context, and travel to their ancestral villages. For more info, visit their website or facebook page. www.mychinaroots.com


  • British Chinese Armed Forces Heritage Project

Funded by Heritage Lottery Fund, British Chinese Armed Forces is a 4-year partnership project (2015-2018) collaborated with Ming-Ai (London) Institute and Regent's University London. The primary aim of the project is to create a historical archive which will become the basis for the generation of a series of related community initiatives.
