This chapter explores the actual process of genealogy compilation in the Jiangsu-Zhejiang area in China during the Qing and Republican periods. It investigates how and how often genealogies were compiled, who collected the necessary information and edited the texts, how genealogies were funded, and how they were printed and distributed. The chapter discusses the professionalization of genealogy production and suggests that the genealogy masters might also supervise the technical aspects of publication, including the carving of the block or wooden type, proofreading, and the printing of the texts.

Keywords:   genealogy, Jiangsu-Zhejiang area, China, Qing period, Republican period, publication, proofreading, printing
