Genealogical Resources for Angel Island

The event is presented online via Zoom

Immigrants from Eighty Countries who passed through Angel Island and the Genealogical Resources They Left Behind

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 case studies of Chinese, Japanese, Jewish, Korean, Russian, and South Asian immigrants, as well as the island's use to house "enemy aliens" from Hawaii and the West Coast during World War II, and find out about the National Archives and other resources that might be available for your own research.

Topics that will be covered:

  • History of the immigration station and why it was built.
  • Examples of stories of Angel Island immigrants from several different countries.
  • Resources for Angel Island and West Coast immigrant research, including online and at the National Archives in San Bruno.
