    Default China website to show your family tree

    There is a new website launched by Shanghai Library, which can trace back most Chinese family names, history, family trees etc, very interesting if u really want to know where u came from. However u must be able to enter your name in Chinese character.

    no records. but impossible for them to have right? we did not fill up some forms for them, and our infomation are supposed to be kept confidential by the Singapore government(serious offense if they leak out info).

    All Chinese are originated from China, its just that which generation u belong to. If u know the name of your grand father, yr great-grand father or further up, u can do a search. There should be a record before he left China.

    Didn't have anything on my surname too. Didn't have any high hopes in the beginning since my surname is so rare. But I did a search for the origins of my surname, and most books says
    it's a national name conferred upon officials who did merit for the country.

    The logo seems to look like a rip off from our National Arts Council logo.

    My surname is qi, 齐, 齊.
    There are some records, but they are not even close to either my ancestral home nor, the
    historical origins of the surname.
