We offer you an opportunity to search for the roots that
link you to the past and place you in the present... to journey
back to ancestral beginnings, to the land and into the lives
of the individuals who created your heritage and influenced
you at this point in your life.
The In Search of Roots Program involves a yearlong commitment
on researching ones Chinese American family history
and genealogy. After exploring their Chinese roots in America,
participants will explore their roots in China through visiting
their maternal or paternal ancestral villages in the Pearl
River Delta region of Guangdong Province. The program culminates
in a Chinese New Year exhibition of the interns research
at the Chinese Culture Center in San Francisco, where participants
share what they have learned with family, friends, and community.
The Chinese Culture Center Foundation of San Francisco, Chinese
Historical Society of America and Overseas Chinese Affairs
Office in Guangdong Province of the Peoples Republic
of China are sponsors of the In Search of Roots program.
