*My ancestors originally were from Shenyang, Liaoning Province (then also called Manchuria). Later, they probably were grouped into the Manchu administrative category of the True Red Banner (True Red Banner Army) of the Han people under the Manchu's Banner System. They moved south at the very beginning of the Ch‘ing (Qing) dynasty in the 17th century.
