Immigrant Sugar Plantation Workers in Hawaii:  A Multi-Ethnic Approach to Genealogy

 

Saturday, September 14, 2019. 

CGS Classroom  1:00 PM - 3:00 PM 

 

 

For almost a century, people from all over the world came to Hawaii to work on the sugar plantations. Research on these immigrants reveals a wide range of experiences that did not always end in Hawaii but sometimes involved return to the homeland or migration to the mainland.  In addition to discussing sources of genealogical records and how to access them, this presentation will include examples of how historical and cultural context and chronicles of everyday life can provide rich and memorable impressions of plantation-era ancestors in Hawaii.

 

 Born in Hawaii, Cindy Thomson has spent the past 12 years researching her Korean ancestors – who arrived in Hawaii in the early 1900’s during the sugar plantation era – as well as Japanese, Chinese, German, and Australian family members in Hawaii and on the mainland.  Convinced of the value of multi-ethnic research, she has since broadened her interests to include the many diverse immigrant groups in the plantation workforce.  She has a B.A. and M.A. from the University of California, San Diego, and is a recently-retired Commerce Department economist.
