I was responding to question in another thread. After spending the time generating images to try to make my explanation clear, I wanted to make the information more available.
That is why these Forum conversations are called threads; it weaves itself throughout the fabric of Chinese genealogy and allows a freer flow of ideas. Unfortunately, months later, it makes finding the topic difficult, almost like a needle in a haystack (to mix my metaphors).
I also use the search function at the top of the page. However, this Forum engine is old and the search function leaves much to be desired. There has already been discussions about migrating to a newer engine. However, this runs the risk of losing access to the wealth of previous information.
msen: Hi Sis, and welcome to the forum. As you know, I recently returned on a long journey from Florida to see one of our American cousins, sadly, in hospice. Her wish was to reconnect our family and visit with as many as could make the trip to her bedside.

msen: Oops, I guess i will continue in shoutbox, but merely wanted to reply to you! Long story short, her wish came true and now we have, thanks to forum friends, our village and some names in our father's family. Shout out to Laohuaqiao, FayChee and forum.
