Wordless Wednesday: Angel Island Nikkei Pilgrimage

 Volunteers from left to right:  Maureen Hanlon, Diana Edwards, Todd Armstrong,
Jim Russell, Lisa Gorrell, Janice Sellers, Stacy Hoover, Linda Okazaki and Adelle Treakle
A day of education, fun and remembrance was had October 1st as the California Genealogical Society took part in the Nikkei Pilgrimage to Angel Island that celebrates the Japanese-American experience.

How did we participate?
Linda Okazaki, our president, gave a presentation that encouraged people to find their family through the power of family history.

We also had a wonderful group of our dedicated volunteers who conducted genealogy consultations and helped participants get started in their hunt for family records.

We love being a part of events that celebrate the diversity of California and the United States.  Do you have an event that you'd like us to participate in? Contact Linda Okazaki and learn how the California Genealogical Society can help with your next genealogy event.
