Online map of Jeremy Lin's ancestral home in Changhua

Taipei, March 3 (CNA) Jeremy Lin's sudden rise to fame has made his father's hometown in central Taiwan a popular spot, and fans have created an online map marking locations of the NBA star's ancestral residence and shops selling noted local delicacies, it was reported Saturday. Lin, an American of Taiwanese descent, first took the world by storm a few weeks ago when his performances helped the New York Knicks record their longest winning streak of the season in February.
He returned to Beidou Township in Changhau County last year to visit relatives and pay respects to his ancestors. According to shop owners and Lin family neighbors, many tourists have inquired about information about Lin's home since "Linsanity" seized the world's attention.
Besides showing the location of the Lin clan, the map also gives the location of the elementary school his father attended and offers suggestions where people can try meatballs, Lin's favorite local snack. (By Wu Jhe-hao and Nell Shen)
