A company manager doing the business of spreading the family tree culture frankly said that currently the frequency of interactions among relative families and within in a family is so low that people's senses of the blood relationship and family tree have weakened.

In fact, as a link between the past and future, a family tree could give great cohesion and vitality to a family. Chen suggests that, in order to solve the bottleneck problems mentioned above, experts and scholars should be invited to do the compiling and writing work of family trees.

According to surveys by experts, 97 Chinese family names have something to do with Henan Province. 77 Chinese family names originated directly from the province and the thriving places of 98 Chinese family names were in the province. These family names cover 90 percent of current Chinese people.
