This seems like a nice idea. One of the foibles of classical Chinese genealogy is its patriarchal emphasis. The given names, let alone the date of birth, of ancestral women, are rarely recorded in genealogical documents.
Western genealogy has a more egalitarian approach. Therefore, these embossing of fan charts for many Chinese genealogist will look more like hatchets or even lollipops than complete circles.
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.
