Our Than Family is being 1000 years of age in 2010 (1010 - 2010). The ‘Millennium Anniversary of the Than Family’ will be held to commemorate our ancestors and to bring up the traditions of the family to our descendants.

In Thua Thien - Hue, the Anniversary was held on August 19, 2010 at the Ancestral Temple of the Than Family in An Lo, Phong Hien commune, Phong Dien suburban district.
On the national scale, The ‘Millennium Anniversary of the Than Family’ will be held at the Temple of Literature in Ha Noi Capital, where there is a marble stele glorifying the Doctors written by His Highness Than Nhan Trung with his famous words ‘The Virtuous Talented are the Chi (Unique Essence) of the Nation’.
On this occasion, a book entitled ‘The Than Family - a Flow in the Millennium’ will be published by Thuan Hoa Publisher. There found many articles about the Than family by famous historians and researchers.
The board of organizers will send letter of invitation to representatives in Central Organizations, in Bac Giang, Hanoi, Hochiminh City, and to Than Family Councils in Vietnam and Overseas. Would every Than member having the possibility to attend the event register yourself with the board of organizers at the following address:
Mr. Than Trong Ninh
Address: 10/75 Phan Dinh Phung Street, Hue City - Vietnam
Tel: (054) 3.823785
from now until November 10, 2010. This would help us to arrange the reception in Hanoi, to issue name tags and badges, and so on.
As our budget is very limited, would all members who participate in this event take care of your travel fees, meals, and accommodation on your own. We do hope that you will sympathize with us the above inconveniences. This irresistibility is the one that the board of organizers has put into consideration so far. However, we haven’t found out any better solution up till now. We do hope to get your sympathy.
