Published by CCHS, this anthology consists of 23 authors (twenty Chinese and three Aboriginals).
Each writer talks about their unique home cook meal recipes, childhood stories, and historical photographs.
In addition to capturing the spirit and wisdom of these two ethnic groups in Canada, this compilation exists in the hope that our young generation will gain further understanding of the Canadian history
and that it will heighten their interest in the study of the influence and contributions of the Chinese immigrants
and the Aboriginals in the historical development of Canadian politics, economy and social culture.
My stories partake with one of Hong Kong’s cultures – the simmering of soup.
Through my mother’s recipes, her knowledge of Chinese medicinal soup and love for her children have been shared.
I hope my Canadian born son will learn about the profound meaning of “the torch of fire”.
Equally, I wish the dynamic recounts of the family stories will provide my husband of British and Metis background
a wider angle to Chinese philosophy and customs in addition to that of his own.
"Research Guide to Chinese Genealogy: 2nd edition" includes the same content of the first edition plus an appendix of these two templates; Trip planner and Family member list, to help researchers keep track of their research project. This is especially important if a family is comprised of different racial background and wish to one day help their adopted children trace their Chinese roots. This workbook will give you a hands-on approach of where to look when tracing your Chinese family history even without Chinese language skills.
