Researching Asian-Pacific American History & Genealogy

May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month, so this month I’m going to share some resources for researching Asian-Pacific American history & genealogy.  Some of the most well known events tied to the Asian experience in the United States are negative:  the Chinese Exclusion Acts and the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. 

Exploring Thailand @ The Library

Each year in May, the Atascocita Branch Library, presents programs to celebrate Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month. This is an incredible opportunity for families to learn a little about  Asian, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander peoples and their culture.  This year, we learned about Thailand.
