Researches on Manchu Origins

Researches on Manchu Origins (Möllendorff: Manjusai da sekiyen-i kimcin bithe; Chinese: 滿洲源流考; pinyin: Mǎnzhōu Yuánliú Kǎo) is an important history book published by the Qing Dynasty government in 1777. The book describes the origin of Manchu people and the foundation of the Jin and Qing Dynasties by Jurchens and Manchus respectively. It consists of 4 parts: Manchu tribes, territory, topography (mountains and rivers), and culture. Pamela Kyle Crossley analyses it as the apex of the Qing Dynasty's attempt at "documentary institutionalisation" of Manchu heritage and from it, Manchu ethnic identity.[1]

Researches on Manchu Origins contained a list of corrections of transcribed Jurchen language words found in the History of Jin in Chapter 135 - 金史/卷135, using the Manchu language to correct them, in Chapter 18 - 滿洲源流考/卷18.
