< strong>Many genealogies may not all be credible due to the age and other reasons.

For this matter, on August 10th, the director of the Research Office of the Sansu Cultural Research Institute and the China Su Shi Research Society Deputy Secretary-General Liu Qingquan told the Red Star News reporter that “Su Bingtian is a descendant of Su Shi” has been said before. From the perspective of inheriting Dongpo culture, there will be no problem, but from the existing historical evidence, it is still To be certified.

In Liu Qingquan’s view, many genealogies today, even if they are left by their ancestors, may not all be available due to the long span of time, the departure of wars, interruption of records, and social and economic reasons. letter. For example, Liu Qingquan said that with the development of thousands of years and the alternation of dynasties, due to wars, natural disasters, migration and other reasons, there will be a lack of textual research on intentional or unintentional revisions and continuations, and errors and falsehoods are inevitable.

In addition, the family concept of social development has a great influence. In ancient times, a person’s background was very important to his social status and career development. Since the turmoil in the Tang Dynasty, there has been a lack of management in the cultivation of genealogy. The Song, Ming and Qing dynasties have prospered in folk cultivation of genealogy, and even the rulers have respected the folk cultivation of genealogy. Except for people like Ouyang Xiu and Su Xun, ordinary people have also begun to respect their ancestors, respect their ancestors and accept their clan. The genealogy is repaired, but some genealogy repairs take several decades, and the phenomenon of clinging and false identification occurs from time to time.

Also One reason is that many genealogies that survive today come from genealogists who make a living by cultivating genealogy, and some recordsThe level of genealogy craftsmen is uneven, it may be that their own level is not enough, or it may be for the needs of the genealogists, resulting in false records.

In addition, the phenomenon of clinging to famous people in genealogy has existed since ancient times. As a self-record of a family, genealogy has strong self-consciousness and also has great subjective limitations. General genealogy always promotes the family. Good and evil concealed evil, reshaped the image of ancestors according to Confucian etiquette, standardized the words and deeds of ancestors, and even exaggerated and fabricated the prominent history and fine traditions of their own clan.
