Dear Madam/Sir at Mission Genealogy Club,
 
Happy Cultural Diversity Day!
 
Since 2002 and in response to growing xenophobia and intolerance around the world, the 21st of May has been the UNESCO’s World Cultural Diversity Day for Dialogue and Development. At My China Roots, we strongly believe that being a better citizen of the world means coming to terms with our origins, and understanding that our differences are also what connect us.

Come and celebrate your heritage with us today, and visit www.mychinaroots.com
 
So what’s new at My China Roots?
 
We’re expanding!
Imagine if you were able to step into your ancestors’ shoes for a day: eat their food, speak their language, wage their wars… At My China Roots, we are currently developing a new, interactive and dynamic online platform that will bring you closer to your ancestors like never before, all from the comfort of your own home! We have been receiving considerable fundraising interest and are currently in talks with investors and developers to help make this dream a reality.

MCR's Journey to South and Central America
Over the past few months, one of our project officers, Clotilde Yap, travelled to Peru, Cuba, Jamaica and the US to research local Chinese communities. Giving introductory workshops on Chinese genealogy and participating in key conferences about the Chinese diaspora, Clotilde was able to connect with various institutions, academics and enthusiasts alike. Visit the My China Roots blog to read about her experiences in Peru, Cuba and Jamaica: http://www.mychinaroots.com/blog/ 
Do you speak Spanish? Read about her trips to Peru in local Sino-Peruvian magazines Integracion, Revista Oriental and in regional newspaper UNDiario. To view a snippet of one of her workshops on How to Read your Jiapu, click here.
