Documents commonly used in Chinese genealogy research are family records like the jiapu/zupu and local gazetteers. Tony King will address both of these critical tools but will also provide an introduction into the lesser known world of other documents and resource materials that originated in China. To name a few, this includes marriage agreements, property records, residential registrations, census records, examination rosters, and obituaries. He will discuss the possible value these have to our genealogical research as well as repositories such as archives, libraries, the internet, and search strategies.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, Tony King is of Toisanese roots. His ancestors immigrated to the U.S. in the late 1800’s. Since entering retirement some ten years ago, he has concentrated on searching out his Chinese roots. He has conducted research during extended stays in China, as well as during trips to California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, New York, and Canada.  Tony serves as a volunteer for FamilySearch, consulting with patrons seeking assistance.
