A SPECIAL LECTURE, SATURDAY, MARCH 22, 2014
This special lecture will present people of Chinese heritage with an overview of how Chinese family history has been recorded over the centuries and what people living today need to know if they want to find information about their ancestors in China and elsewhere in the world. The lecture will be in Chinese with English explanations as needed.
The one-hour lecture will be followed by a question and answer period of 30 minutes.
