My parents are Taiwanese and are reluctant to share or do not know much family history. Much of the information they do share is vague or does not lend itself to searching on the internet using sites designed for American/European genealogy and data.
How can I get more useful information out of my parents to help provide more information that I can use for searching genealogy records? What kind(s) of information or questions would be helpful for me to ask? Are there online records that can be searched using Chinese characters, and if so, how do I type Chinese names?
