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.
Need some pointers on finding Chinese ancestry records? For my readers, I’ve put together a free 3-page checklist, gleaned from 25+ years of focusing on Chinese genealogy.
