Angel Island's Immigrants from 80 Countries: Stories from the West Coast Counterpart to Ellis Island - free webinar by Grant Din now online for limited time
The recording of today's webinar by Grant Din, "Angel Island's Immigrants from 80 Countries: Stories from the West Coast Counterpart to Ellis Island" is now available to view at www.FamilyTreeWebinars.com for free for a limited time.
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. There were generally more barriers to Angel Island immigrants than on Ellis Island, and case files document these challenges faced by immigrants. Learn from examples 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.
