Dear Madam/Sir at Mission Genealogy Club,
Happy Cultural Diversity
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
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. For more information
or to get involved, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
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
