The Lins in the Liujia settlement in Zhubei is an important lineage who has engaged in exploring the Tochian-Fengshan River basin in northern Taiwan. The history of the lineage is also an important part of the history of Taiwan's Hsinchu region. The Lin's historical documents are currently preserved by Lin Bao-Min and were registered in Taiwan Historica. The preliminary digital arrangement completed by Taiwan Historica shows that there are 294 entries, with the earliest one being a Tenant grant by Ijun-Dalima in Qianlong 11 years (1746) and the most recent being a Letter written by Lin Qixiong to his grand uncle in the Republic of China 38 years (1949). The author grouped these documents into four categories according to their content and nature, with the categories being the transfer of land ownership, public documents, private documents, and miscellaneous. With recent developments such as the High-speed Rail and urbanization, the Lin lineage, community, and people who care about the Hakka culture are looking forward to the future of the Lin's settlement. In the meantime, founding father Lin Xiankun's ancestral temple, named the House of Daifu is under repair. The Lin Bao-Min historical documents are colorful relics, which will help to rebuild and showcase the history of the Lin settlement.
