OK. I just asked because once I visited a 八旗子弟's 胡同 四合院 in Beijing. The lady showed me her full trunk of Manchurian heirloom comprising pennants and what nots she'd kept all these years.pirate wrote: ↑Fri Jul 26, 2019 4:05 pmBecause our 族谱 is still quite intact in the village (now officially designated XX畲族村), so I can trace my genealogy all the way back to the 畲族 ancestor who founded the village in the Ming Dynasty. I suspect they already threw away the ethnic costumes in the Qing dynasty. The current ones probably only to sing sing dance dance the tourists .
Btw, 刘家昌 was born in Manchukuo （辽、黑、吉） - the puppet state created by the Japanese. However, he is Shandongese apparently. I don't know why his Shandong parents were in Harbin, Heilongjiang, causing him be born there as a Manchukuo citizen. There were many 本省台湾汉族 civil servants posted from Japan colony, Taiwan, to Manchukuo from 1932-45.
