The place of origin is the long-term residence of the patrilineal ancestors or above, that is, the place where the grandfather’s generation lived for a long time, also known as the ancestral residence or origin. Some people who have left the birthplace of their ancestors or have left their hometown, their descendants still trace back to the birthplace of their ancestors or the hometown of their ancestors (ie ancestral home) as their place of origin.
Place of origin is generally patrilineal, individual from matrilineal; from ancestral home, ancestral home refers to the long-term place of residence of grandparents, divided by region.
1. “Wei Shu · Shi Huo Zhi”: “Since the past, the household registration of various states has not been true, which contains hidden leaks and abolishes public and private affairs.”
During the reign of Zhengde, there was a man named Yang Yanhe, who was originally the native place of Chengdu Prefecture, Sichuan Province.”
There is a difference between native place and household registration. Native place refers to the ancestral place or place of origin. The place of domicile is not necessarily the ancestral or native place of the person, especially in economically developed areas and some new places that started construction after the founding of New China and developed rapidly in modern times. A large number of people’s place of domicile is not the place of domicile. These people generally migrated from other places after the reform and opening up or in China’s planned economy era according to the distribution of the country at that time, or immigrated to new places in modern times.
