There is also a list in alphabetical order,
in whatever form the names were romanized.
The surname pages will contain links and references to
Family Name Associations,
home pages, and other references to persons of that surname.
Note that characters in brackets [百 家 姓 ] are
in Big5 format.
If you have a Macintosh, Mac OS 8.5 or later supports reading Chinese fonts, but for inputting Chinese characters, or if you have a system earlier than OS 8.5,
I suggest you install the Chinese Language Kit.
If you are running Windows I suggest you install the Big5 Chinese fonts from the Microsoft
website and a recent browser.
