This researc was required that would finished in three years. 1998 was the last year of this research. Although each member have concluded their own subject, we had to research again because of we have found the points of difference. Consequently, we went to Wenzhou District and Lishui Ditrict in Zhejiang Province, where we have researched for the past two years. We researched there in two groups that the same method as the previous year. And we could get the new document and clear the points of difference.
As a result, we could understand the new considerations as follows.
1.We could understand a relationship between the village structure and lineage system in the space of settlement.
2 .We could clear the traditional method of breeding for livestock.
3 We could clear the existence of temple and its deification in a village.
4.We coul(l recognize the thought of fungshui was cleared under the general policy of reform and openness and it was an important thing for the people.
Especially. we could succeeded to understand these subjects in rural villages of Southern East China where have transformed rapidly by the general policy of reform and openness. Although it. had been formerly difficult ho have a look or take a photograph the written genealogy of lineage in the each village, we could copy them. The method of this research consists of an interview, and we could also get the document that was equivalent to an interview. This will be contributing to a research for the future.
