If you meet some distant relative, would you know who is older? Not in terms of age, but in the order according to your geneology tree?

I have some who are much older than I am but they have to adress me as uncle or something older. Any idea how the Chinese are able to keep track of who belongs to which generation?

MANILA, April 13, 2004 (STAR) By Wilson Lee Flores - Many people are now being misled into thinking that the future salvation of the Philippines lies with the new president and all the other politicians we shall elect. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Entrepreneurs are the true hope of the Philippine future, not self-serving politicians who now deluge the airwaves and pollute the archipelago with their glib campaign promises. Can Entrepreneurs Be Philippine Heroes?

Picturesque Hongjian Village, with its clean streets and graceful-looking houses is located just one kilometre from Ciji Palace. This is the ancestral home of Corazon Aquino, former president of the Philippines.

More than 120 years ago, her great-grandfather Xu Yuhuan and others bid farewell to their fellow villagers and sailed across the sea to start a new life in the Philippines. Aquino's ancestral hall still stands today - an ancient-looking structure that has been converted into a primary school, where students attend classes under portraits of their forefathers.

During her visit to China in 1988, President Aquino came to Hongjian Village with her two daughters and met their kin. She dropped in on her uncle and donated money to rebuild the Xus' ancestral hall.

Today, President Aquino's portrait still graces many homes in the village.
