The Chrysalis: The Early Life of Susanne Gim Ling Yip Sang

For Asian Heritage month, I’m showcasing some of the finds I’ve uncovered, discovered, or rediscovered over the years of digging into my ancestry.

On April 21, I was invited to do a webinar for Ancestry.ca on finding Chinese genealogical records with Ancestry.ca. If you misssed it on Facebook Live, check out my blog here. In the webinar, I featured my great-aunt, Gim Ling “Susan” Yip, pictured here in 1918 (left).

But documents only tell a part of the story. For a look at how I put the documents together, see my post on Ancestry.ca, entitled The Chrysalis: The Early Life of Susanne Gim Ling Yip Sang.
