How to Find Your Japanese Immigrant Ancestors

Saturday, July 22, 2017
2:00 PM

Learn how to conduct research using the federal immigration and naturalization records maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

Find ship passenger records, even if you don’t know when your ancestors arrived in the United States. Explore immigration case files and other federal records that can offer unique insights into the lives of your ancestors at the time of their arrival in this country and how they were affected by immigration policies.

Led by Marisa Louie Lee, former archivist at the National Archives at San Francisco and an avid researcher and genealogist who specializes in federal records.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.

Presented in partnership with Nikkei Genealogical Society.
