Need a little clarification please. Working on Empress Me. I got copies of Chinese lineage and found that Empress Cixi son’s father was nephew of Gong. Do I put uncle +nephew plus ? Cixi.? Thank you

I think you are lost in the weeds of Chinese princely lineages and need to start over. Do a google search for "Prince Gong Yixin" to find the Wikipedia page for the Prince Gong who lived from 1833-1898. Avoid the Wikipedia page for "Prince Gong (peerage)" which will definitely lead you to some interesting family trees that are much too detailed for this badge!
