The Chinese Family History Group of SoCal meets to help anyone on a quest to trace his or her Chinese-American ancestors. While they work on their individual research, they also gather information and resources particular to those working on their Chinese family histories. In addition to assessing traditional genealogical sources of information for relevance, the Chinese Family History Group of SoCal group are looking at sources of information particular to their roots, such as backgrounds on family surnames, maps of common ancestral areas, Exclusion Act records, specific questions for oral interviews based on specific historical research, and local sources of information as yet untapped.
