9 Badass Women in Chinese History

Celebrating Women’s month March 2021 was this article from thatsmags.com. I believe the site is not in the United States (probably on mainland China) and the link has been very slow to load on my home ISP. I therefore (with moderate effort) took images of the site and combined them to make reading more accessible for those in the United States. The hyperlink below is the URL to the site and our users can view the site itself. ~dj MAR2021

Back to Basics

After many presentations on Chinese history like WW2, Nightclubs, Chinese New Year, we decided to return back to our basics of genealogy/family history techniques.

First in our series is Kelly Summers 2 parts on evaluating census records. Because of the personal relationship Gail has with Kelly during both a China visit and Henry Tom seminar, we were able to secure what normally is a fee based course Kelly wanted to contribute her part as a member of BACGG and supports out work. Kelly tailored her talk to our orientation on Chinese American family history. Kelly is an excellent teacher and explains well the nuances of using Vital Statistics. I would recommend commissioning if you need help finding your relatives whereabouts using the census reporting.

Session 1 was Zoomed on 12/2 for – Census Research training.
Session 2 was Zoomed on 12/16 for – Vital Statistic Research training.

Because this was our first non Webinar meeting, we limited invitations in order to do a proof-of-concept trial. The meeting was a success with 9/9 responders to the poll stating they had learned new research tips from Kelly.

Thank you Gail and Kelly.
