    So very interesting. This is a subject I have always been interested in. I am not Chinese, but the history of the early west has always fascinated me, and these people who came over and then went back home to get a bride and come back were fascinating to me.

    Fascinating topic and presentation! I don’t have any Chinese ancestry but am always interested in learning about areas outside of my own ancestry. Thank you to Legacy for providing such a broad range of topics and to Grant for a really interesting presentation.
