Beside the Table of Contents shown above, here are some additional vital statistics on the book:
17 Chapters on Chen genealogy
4 Chapters on miscellaneous historical background information
3 Timelines spanning 5,000 years of Chinese history
26 Pedigree Charts
7 Genealogy Poems
The pedigree charts are quite comprehensive, providing names in Hanyu Pinyin plus Chinese characters as well as other miscellaneous information including historical periods in the clan’s history.
All the maps were specially created to complement the text and to depict the locations of ancient historical sites in modern China. These kinds of maps are not normally found in Chinese genealogy publications and are therefore unique.
Some of the important personages in our Chen Clan have been included with capsule biographies and these also include some of the famous people in Chinese history who have been linked to or have contributed in some way to our clan history.
The book also contains an Index to allow for quick searches to find a particular item of interest. An index is never encountered in Chinese publications which make it very difficult to quickly locate topics of interest.
