  • It’s much easier to view the database on a desktop or laptop computer. You can sort and filter the table by any of the columns, such as birth year.

  • To expand a record, either click on it (mobile), or hover over it and click the blue double arrow (desktop/laptop). 

  • The person listed in the last column, WhoToContact, has more detailed information. If a Chinese phone number is listed, you may be able to search on WeChat by the phone number. Otherwise, you will most likely need a Chinese speaker to make the call for you. If you don’t get a response, try the poster manager below for the province the family is from, or you can contact us at

  • You can find a simple lunar-Gregorian date converter here.
