I would love to learn more about you. But that won't happen if you're going to "reply very selectively" :D
I come from a long line of Manchurian nobles and warlords and my paternal family tree dates back to the 1500s. Although these don't matter much nowadays. But our land and titles were long lost in the 1911 revolution. All that matters is the knowledge that you possess, because nobody can take that away.
