Archivist Marisa Louie of the National Archives at San Francisco will speak about resources of genealogical interest found at our local National Archives facility in San Bruno and at locations nationwide. Learn how to get in touch with archivists, how to navigate the website, and what is – and what isn't – in the holdings of the National Archives.

Ms. Louie was one of the presenters at our Chinese Ancestry Workshop in 2010. She is a fantastic speaker and we are thrilled to have her back.

Marisa encourages attendees to include any questions you might have about the National Archives when you register for the class. You can also leave your questions here in the comments and I will forward them to her.

Register online.

The class is limited to thirty participants and is a free benefit of membership. Non-members fee is $20.00 (non-refundable).

Preregistration is required. Walk-ins will not be admitted. Registration confirmations will be sent to the first thirty registrants. Additional names will be collected and placed on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

Marisa Louie has been on staff at The National Archives at San Francisco (located in San Bruno, California) as an archivist since September 2009. She primarily works with Asian American genealogists and family historians interested in case files created by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (Record Group 85). She is also the project archivist for the Alien Files ("A-Files") transferred to her facility. Marisa holds a B.A. in American Studies and Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and is a past participant in the "In Search of Roots" program.
