Your Chinese Roots: The Chinese Overseas Story
Thomas Tsu-wee Tan
Since China has 'opened up' over the last few decades, there has been a growing interest amongst huaqiao (overseas Chinese) in finding out more about their roots back in China. This book, although written by an academic, sets out to firstly explain the Chinese family system and origin of names and then give pointers as to how to trace places of origin and, if you're lucky, the part of the family which was left behind. Very Good Hardback First Edition 262 pages. The book is divided into four parts, namely - I - Being Chinese, II - Out of China, III - A Community Transplanted, IV - Tracing Your Origins followed by a bibliography and other useful appendices.
