Japanese American Genealogy Seminar: "Finding Your Nikkei Roots in the U.S. and Japan" (Workshops)
The San Joaquin Genealogical Society (SJGS) and the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), Stockton Chapter are excited to co-sponsor a seminar on researching your Japanese ancestry.
Linda Harms Okazaki, a noted expert in Japanese American genealogy and history, will be the featured speaker. Her presentation will begin with Japanese-American history and family research in the United States, and will conclude with family research in Japan. We hope you can join us for this exciting and informative event! Please see the attached flier for more details.
SJGS volunteers will be offering short personal genealogy consultations after the seminar, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Bring any known names and vital dates (birth, marriage, death) for your ancestors, and let us help you learn more about their history.
