February 8, 2020 seems like a lifetime ago – it was the date of our last in-person event! We were fortunate to feature noted genealogist Linda Harms Okazaki in a sold-out seminar at the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library. We know everyone could use some good news now, so we are happy to share information about a digital genealogy series that Linda has created with Densho, a grassroots organization “dedicated to preserving, educating, and sharing the story of World War II-era incarceration of Japanese Americans in order to deepen understandings of American history and inspire action for equity.”
“Finding Your Nikkei Roots in the U.S. and Japan” is available for FREE on the Densho website. Ten sessions are available, from “Introduction to Genealogy” to “Recording Oral Histories.” We are grateful to Linda for sharing her knowledge so that we can all have an opportunity to find the roots that ground us and our community.
