Village Location Package
We track down the hometown of your Chinese ancestor.
Do you know where your Chinese ancestors came from, but can't locate it on a map?
Our experts are here to help!
Many places in China have been renamed in the last 150 years, and GoogleMaps doesn't cover all locations. We'll investigate whether your ancestral home still exists, and find its exact address.
How it Works
- First, we'll ask you for information about your ancestors and where they came from.
- Next, we'll make phone calls to local government offices, check geographical gazetteers and other resources to track down the exact location of your village.
- Once we've found some leads, we'll contact each of them to see if they match the place your ancestor came from.
- If successful, we'll send you the confirmed location in GoogleMaps along with the contact information of relevant people on the ground.
