ONLINE - Chinese Exclusion Act Case Files: A Treasure Trove of Original Documents

Hosted by Trish Hackett Nicola
ONLINE CLASS VIA ZOOM

The purpose of the Chinese Exclusion Act was to limit the number of Chinese entering the United States, exclude laborers, and prevent the Chinese already here from becoming naturalized citizens. This presentation will include background information about what was happening in China and the U.S. leading up to passage of the Act, and give you examples of the types of documents that were created for Chinese individuals over the sixty-one years the Act was in existence. Any time the Chinese, even those born in the U.S., wanted to leave the country, whether to Canada or China, they needed to obtain proper documentation to assure their re-entry into the country. The National Archives-Seattle has over 50,000 case files. Most files contain photos and biographical information on the applicant who was frequently questioned in great detail about his family, home and village in China. See examples of documents and photos from the files and find out how and where to find the files. NOTE: Many of the Seattle files are for Chinese who had a connection to California.

The meeting will take place VIA ZOOM on Thursday, May 28, at 1 pm. If you join, please sign in early to make sure you are able to see the program. We will send you instructions the night before which will give you access.

ONLINE - 20th Century Immigration and Naturalization Records

Hosted by Marisa Louie Lee
ONLINE CLASS VIA ZOOM

The National Archives maintains a wealth of records relating to immigration and naturalization in the 20th century. This includes more than one million Alien Case Files, or "A-Files", which relate to noncitizen alien residents of the United States and are a potential wealth of genealogical information. Marisa Louie Lee will discuss more about what and who is in the A-Files, how to find them at the National Archives, and how to access records that remain with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). She will share some personal stories from the Asian Pacific American community to illuminate what you might find in these records. Finally, we'll look at additional resources on FamilySearch and Ancestry, and understand how those point to original immigration-related records in archival holdings.

June 17, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Hosted by Stewart Blandón Traiman
ONLINE CLASS VIA ZOOM

Stewart loves spreadsheets! He uses spreadsheets at work every day as an IT Manager. He is an expert in Microsoft Excel using it in genealogy quite frequently. Laying out all the data in Excel can help researchers see gaps in knowledge or correlations between data points. Breakthroughs can easily happen by visualizing data in spreadsheets. Stewart shows many examples of his use of spreadsheets to track newspaper clippings, a vital records catalog, tracking ancestor addresses over time, and tracking whole families over many censuses. Stewart will teach how to use Excel filter, sorting, color coding, calculations and many other functions.
Spreadsheets are fun!

Genealogical Resources for Angel Island

Immigrants from Eighty Countries who passed through Angel Island and the Genealogical Resources They Left Behind

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. Learn from examples of case studies 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.

Topics that will be covered:

History of the immigration station and why it was built.
Examples of stories of Angel Island immigrants from several different countries.
Resources for Angel Island and West Coast immigrant research, including online and at the National Archives in San Bruno.

Exploring Military Records Series
Four Sessions on every other Saturday Morning
September 19, October 3, October 17, October 31
10 am - 12 pm PDT
Presented by California Genealogical Society and Susan Goss Johnston

The term “military records” is a very nondescript name for a vast and varied group of records whose coverage encompasses most of the men, and many women, throughout this country’s history. To use these records effectively, a family historian must understand their creation, organization, and access, not just extract specific content. There are over-arching patterns in these records. Recognizing these patterns, and their exceptions, will help researchers navigate this treasure trove. Each session’s case studies will explore specific records and the research questions those records might answer. In this exploration, search tips and tricks for major online resources will be provided in real time – if the Internet cooperates. Websites that will be explored include, but are not limited to, Fold3, FamilySearch, and Archives.gov.
SEPT 19 - Pension and Bounty Land Applications
OCT 3 - Service Records
Oct 17 - Before and After Records
Oct 31 - Seldom Used Records

Students will be encouraged to create their own military records catalog, adding to this catalog as the course progresses. As a possible starting point, each student will be provided an Excel copy of the instructor’s personal Revolutionary War records catalog. There will be no assigned homework, but suggestions will be made for individual study. Note that handouts are designed to supplement the presentation content, not duplicate it.

This is an intermediate to advanced level class. Attendees should create a free FamilySearch account.

The sessions will take place via Zoom. If you join, please sign in early to make sure you are able to see the program. We will send you instructions the night before, and a reminder shortly before the event, which will give you access. Please note all times are Pacific Daylight Time.

Researching Mexican Land Grants in Alta California
California Genealogical Society Presents Susan Skilton

The event is presented online via Zoom
Early California genealogy research pairs well with research of early history in the Golden State. Key to understanding California history prior to 1850 is the Mexican Land Grant system. This class will delve into the historical background and the documents involved, as well as where to find the documents. In addition, we will take a look at other types of genealogical records which are important to identifying the profiles of early Californians associated in some way with these land holdings, whether as family members associated with the property, lawyers, ranchers or residents on the land. Many useful records are available online. The territory covered by the land grants was huge, and the historical context is well worth investigating. All researchers are welcome to this introductory class. No knowledge of Spanish is required.
The event will take place via Zoom. If you join, please sign in early to make sure you are able to see the program. We will send you instructions the night before, and a reminder shortly before the event, which will give you access. Please note all times are Pacific Daylight Time.

Exploring Military Records Series
Four Sessions on every other Saturday Morning
September 19, October 3, October 17, October 31
10 am - 12 pm PDT
Presented by California Genealogical Society and Susan Goss Johnston

The term “military records” is a very nondescript name for a vast and varied group of records whose coverage encompasses most of the men, and many women, throughout this country’s history. To use these records effectively, a family historian must understand their creation, organization, and access, not just extract specific content. There are over-arching patterns in these records. Recognizing these patterns, and their exceptions, will help researchers navigate this treasure trove. Each session’s case studies will explore specific records and the research questions those records might answer. In this exploration, search tips and tricks for major online resources will be provided in real time – if the Internet cooperates. Websites that will be explored include, but are not limited to, Fold3, FamilySearch, and Archives.gov.
SEPT 19 - Pension and Bounty Land Applications
OCT 3 - Service Records
Oct 17 - Before and After Records
Oct 31 - Seldom Used Records

Students will be encouraged to create their own military records catalog, adding to this catalog as the course progresses. As a possible starting point, each student will be provided an Excel copy of the instructor’s personal Revolutionary War records catalog. There will be no assigned homework, but suggestions will be made for individual study. Note that handouts are designed to supplement the presentation content, not duplicate it.
This is an intermediate to advanced level class. Attendees should create a free FamilySearch account.
The sessions will take place via Zoom. If you join, please sign in early to make sure you are able to see the program. We will send you instructions the night before, and a reminder shortly before the event, which will give you access. Please note all times are Pacific Daylight Time.

The Sonoma County Genealogical Society Presents
Reclaim the Records: Using Freedom of Information Laws for Genealogy

Brooke Schreier Ganz founder of Reclaim the Records, a not-for-profit activist group of more than 6,400 genealogists, researchers, historians, and journalists, will present how they use
Freedom of Information laws – and sometimes even lawsuits – to obtain copies of previously inaccessible archival record sets, which they then put online for free public
use. They have won the first-ever public and online access to more than twenty-eight million archival records, including the New York City marriage license index (1908-2017), the
New York State death index (1880-1956), the New Jersey marriage index (1901-2016), and they have an ongoing lawsuit for the Missouri birth and death index (1910-present).
This presentation will explain how they accomplished this, as well as the history and legal basics of FOI laws, and will teach researchers how to file requests for any records that
may help their own family tree research.

This is a FREE Presentation and it will be online, via ZOOM.
