Jokbo; an ongoing continuation of my family’s geneaology book 





Jokbo has been a tradition in Korea for families to keep record of their lineage and immediate family within a geneaology book. This allows an individual to identify from which clan they are originally from, and to understand the importance of remembering those who came before. 

The document above is my grandfather’s note, explaining how to understand where I stand within my family’s geneaoloy records. 




Only two accounts are remaining from my family’s original 27 geneaology books, as it becomes physically difficult to keep track. 

This page will be an ongoing archive of my personal documentation, as I find a way of interpreting the names of my ancestors and continuing the tradition.
