Event description

Description

Immigrants from Eighty Countries who Came Through Angel Island, and Genealogical Resources They Left Behind.

While people who have heard about Angel Island might know about the Chinese poetry carved on its walls, what's less known is that over one million people from at least eighty countries were processed by officials based on the island, and there are quite a lot of genealogical resources available through federal government sources. Learn from examples of case studies of Chinese, Jewish, South Asian and Japanese immigrants and find out about National Archives and other resources that might be available for your own research.

Grant Din has been working in Bay Area nonprofit organizations and doing genealogical research for over thirty years. He works as the community resources director at the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation and has a Certificate in Genealogical Studies from Boston University.
