The BPL is excited to announce the addition of a new genealogy database to its online resources: My China Roots https://mychinarootslibrary.com/. In this webinar, Clotilde Yap will provide a brief introduction to Chinese family history research, including how to get started, key challenges, and what clues to look for both at home and online. Finally, Clotilde will provide a live demo of the database, including how to find your Chinese surname, how to find your ancestral village in China, and how to find your Chinese family tree book (jiapu).

Clotilde Yap has assisted families from around the world in tracing their Chinese family history since joining My China Roots in 2017. As the Head of Global Collections for MCR, she researches untapped archives of Chinese communities across the globe, partnering with libraries, museums and community organizations to preserve their collections for posterity.

Please note that registration is required for this event as it is taking place over Zoom.
