Everyone carries a family name, but how much do you know about it? In this talk, the speakers will share findings from field observations and interviews with stakeholders from over 11 local century-old kinship-based clan associations. Beyond an indication of one’s immediate familial ties, the speakers will show how one’s family name relates to a larger extended kinship support network locally and overseas, and how it contributes to building our Chinese Singaporean identity.
This talk is part of the Cultural Heritage of Singapore’s Over-100-Years-Old Kinship-Based Clan Associations research project funded by SCCC. The project documents the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of selected clan associations.
