Ancestors…

In China and in Chinese communities, the fifteenth day after the spring equinox is celebrated as ancestor’s day, The Qingming or Ching Ming Festival. Maybe you could celebrate this day in your own way by writing about your ancestors, or one of them at least!

Maybe you just want to write a particular story associated with someone, maybe you want to follow an event in their life, travel, children, war, earning a living… even if you are not exactly sure of all the details, the wonders of the internet can offer boundless resources to research!

Here is an excellent page, full of suggestions to help you:

You can find some of Dragon Richard Kefford’s family stories here – take a look, well worth a read!
