Learn how to get started researching your family history by taking this workshop at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj). At the end of our session, you will be ready to begin your own research. Topics to be covered include the following:

  • Finding vital records: land, census, and immigration
  • Ordering internment camp records
  • Finding picture-bride case files, alien files, and naturalization records
  • Looking for clues in documents
  • Taking the information you have found to find records in Japan
  • Looking for records only available in Japan, versus looking for records available at the Family History Library in the United States
  • Understanding ohaka (grave site) and kabocho (death registry)
  • Visiting relatives, cemeteries, and temples
