Opening the Memory Chest: How to Research and Write Your Family Story

With Sally Ito and Linda Kawamoto Reid

Presented by Nikkei National Museum and Historic Joy Kogawa House

During the past months under lockdown, many of us have found ourselves more often on the phone or on Zoom with family members. Stories from the past have emerged to help us interpret events today. If you have a family story you would like to research, this is the webinar for you.

Sally Ito’s spring 2020 author residency at Historic Joy Kogawa Historic House has turned into a virtual one due to Covid-19. NNMCC is pleased to partner with the Kogawa House to present this webinar, which we hope will motivate some people to discover your own family history. Listen to Sally Ito read from her novel, The Emperor's Children, and share how she researched her family history to write the book.

Linda Kawamoto Reid, Research Archivist, will talk about how she can help you research your family history.
