Origin place of Hakka
A interesting news item from World Journal 9/23/96. This news
came from Beijing. I just translated the related part:
According to longterm research, Chinese Social Science Institute
is certain now that the place of origin of Hakka is Tan-Feng
County. Tan-feng county is located at the juction of He-nan,
Hu-pei and Shan-si three provinces. From West Chin dynasty to the
end of Ming dynasty, large amount of residents of that county
moved out of the area. Those people moved out of the area were
the ancestors of Hakka that moved to south.
If any one has the full report from the Institute please let
everyone know how to get it. I am very interested in reading it.
