Discover Records Easily

Finding Chinese ancestors is now easier than ever. With Hints Discovery, we automatically match new records to your family tree. Just update your tree and we’ll send hints your way.

🔔 To receive hints, enable “Record Matches” in your Profile under Email Notifications.

🧩 Tip: The more details you add for each ancestor (e.g. bilingual names, places, and dates), the better hints you’ll receive.

🚀 We’ve made significant optimizations to minimize irrelevant hints and simplify the hint review process.
