🎤 Angel Island, by Grant Din

  • 27 Mar 2021
  • 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Via Zoom
Presenter: Grant Din

Our next general meeting will take place on March 27 at 10:30 a.m. via Zoom. Grant Din will tell us about the immigrants passing through Angel Island.

While people who have heard about Angel Island might know about the Chinese poetry carved on its walls, what is less known is that over half a million immigrants from eighty countries were processed by officials on the island, and genealogical resources are still available to researchers.

Learn from examples of Chinese, Japanese, Jewish (from Austria), Korean, Russian, Filipino , and South Asian immigrants, and find out about the National Archives and other resource that might be available for your research.
