Ancestry.com Launches Chinese Site
Posted by Diane
First, The Generations Network
(owner of Ancestry.com
) just launched a Chinese family history Web site at jiapu.cn
The site, written in Chinese, provides access to jiapu (family histories) online. They're available through a partnership with the Shanghai Library
, which holds the largest collection of Chinese family history records in the world. So far, 1,450 jiapu covering 270 surnames are online; eventually, jiapu.cn will contain 22,700 jiapu.
As of now, the family histories are accessible at no cost.
