Looks like Boo-Ciowan (Beijing) to me.
I think the differences are calligraphic.
Thanks. Since I don't read Chinese I just don't know.
To be pedantic, Manchurian is a pretty different language from Chinese.
The Manchu alphabet is a distant descendant of Aramaic via Mongolian.
Manchu is pretty much a dead language, though. Hardly anyone even in China speaks it fluently now, much less reads the script. I once saw a Manchu-English dictionary at a used bookstore, but couldn't justify buying it at the time. Kind of wish I had. One of my wife's recent ancestors was a mix of Mongolian and Manchurian rather than Han Chinese. The facial features are a little different.
Separate names with a comma.
