About This Book

This collection of papers is from the Genealogies and Chinese Overseas Studies Conference organised by the Singapore-based Chinese Heritage Centre on 19 August 2000. The book is divided into two parts. Part one deals with the problems in the compilation of genealogies and suggests ways of improving the reliability and presentation of genealogical records. Part two offers fresh insights into how genealogies can be used to better understand the causes, processes and consequences of Chinese overseas migration seen through the eyes of lineage groups. All the papers are in Chinese, with abstracts in English translation.
