Chinese family's genealogy record

400-year-old record of a Chinese (Weihai, Shandong Province) family's genealogy. Black: males Red: females. A group of visiting US faculty was hosted at a local faculty member's home for lunch, and the family brought out this old paper and rather cavalierly flopped it open on a coffee table. (Note the paper cup of coffee!)
