Confucius' family tree being compiled





Millions of descendants of Confucius are being listed in an international updating of the Chinese philosopher's more than 2,500-year-old family tree, a Taiwanese newspaper reported Monday.

The laborious task — being conducted in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and several other Asian countries — will include an estimated 3 million descendants when it is completed by 2009, the Liberty Times said.

It said the project was being coordinated in Hong Kong, but did not provide further details.
