It is always confusing Chinese family tree when you are in China. The Chinese culture has a much more detailed method of addressing relatives than in English-speaking countries. It is useful to learn how to address each family member in Chinese, especially if you meet your friend's or significant other's family. This video will teach you Chinese relatives names that will help you identify who's who at Chinese family get-togethers.
The Chinese kinship system is classified as a "Sudanese" or "descriptive" system for the definition of family. Identified by Lewis Henry Morgan in his 1871 work Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family, the Sudanese system is one of the six major kinship systems together with Eskimo, Hawaiian, Iroquois, Crow, and Omaha. The Sudanese/Chinese kinship system is the most complicated of all kinship systems. It maintains a separate designation for almost every one of Ego's kin based on their generation, their lineage, their relative age, and their gender. This video is targeted to blind users.

Speaker: Yusheng Peng Max Weber once observed that the strong lineage system in rural China had impeded the development of entrepreneurial capitalism in China. This paper attempts to reevaluate the old Weber thesis by empirically testing the relationship between kinship networks and the bourgeoning rural industrialization during the reform era. Analysis of village-level data shows that lineage networks, measured by the share of households belonging to the largest surname group, have large positive effects on the count of private entrepreneurs and total workforce size of private enterprises in rural China. I interpret this finding from a neoinstutionalist perspective and argue that lineage networks support rural entrepreneurs by enforcing informal norms regarding private property rights w...
10 May 2007 - China's staggering economic growth has overshadowed a more subtle shift in Chinese society.

The China Museum for Taiwan Kinship was a monster fortress of a museum. Basically, it showcases the intertwining of the two state provinces' history, culture, art, politics and traditions. It reminds us that no matter where we are geographically and of what dialect we speak, the Chinese people have shown through history that they have and always will fight together as one Chinese nation with fierce passion and loyalty to defend their national pride.
