comment Where are Genghis Khan's Mongols?
@JoeHobbit Modern-day Mongols in Mongolia, Inner Mongolia, Kalmykia and Buryatia (those living in Mongol proper) are already Genghis Khan's Mongols. The question is originally about these living outside Mongol proper: like Bonan, Mongour, Hazara etc. You can look them up by Googling.

comment Where are Genghis Khan's Mongols?
The answer starts correct. However, it has some misleading information in the second paragraph. Actually, I remember that there was a law that restricted Mongolians to marry Chinese in Yuan dynasty much like the laws in later Qing dynasty that restricted Mongolians and Manchurians to marry Chinese. That is how there are Mongols in Qinghai-Gansu and Yunnan-Sichuan who were left out of the Mongol population moved back to Mongol proper when Yuan collapsed. Modern-day Mongols in Mongolia and Inner Mongolia are not originated from Baikal region, rather either were there or moved there from Yuan.

I guess your college course made generalization in this issue. There are Mongolic-speaking Muslim and Taoist ethnic groups in China who are descendants of Genghis Khan's soldiers. I guess they were not worth noting in the course. These people are called Bonan, Mongour, Dongxiang, Yugur, Sogwo Arig, Sichuan Mongols, Yunnan Mongols, ...

@Noldorin All the question mark are here actually to support the main question by giving some background information that people may remember or consider. Sorry for bad use of literature :) I will keep in mind, thanks!

@Noldorin I read quite few sources about the issue, not just Wikipedia. It is still an open issue and can raise constructive comments.
