Chinese American Research: Challenges and Discoveries

Wednesday, February 10 – 1:00 PM 2:30 PM CST

The Chinese Exclusion Act, in effect from 1882-1943, made it difficult for Chinese to immigrate to America but also created a myriad of documents, many stored in the National Archives, which help genealogists. Researchers often have to determine if family names are “real” or “paper” because of what people had to do to overcome discriminatory laws. The workshop will provide an introduction to these and many other resources, and offer suggestions on other available documents and organizations.
