This is a genealogy book of the Cheongpung Gim Clan compiled by Gim Yuk (aka Lord Munjeong) in 1637. It appears to be a transcribed rough copy made before the official publication of the book in 1638. The rough copy made in 1637 contains less information on the generations of the clan than the one published a year later. In the afterword, the compiler says that he made the book in expectation that members of the clan would form stronger bonds with each other, lamenting that past genealogical records had been lost amid foreign invasions.
