We can hardly wait for this year’s National Genealogical Society conference, “Our American Mosaic,” scheduled for May 24-28 in Sacramento. CGS is the local host society! A number of the speakers are CGS members. Over the next weeks, we will be highlighting each of these speakers. Today:

GRANT DIN will give three presentations at this year’s conference. On Thursday, May 26, he talks about “Angel Island Immigrants from More than Eighty Countries and the Records They Left Behind.” On May 27, he discusses “Chinese Railroad Workers’ Files from the Mid-Nineteenth Century,” and he presents “An Introduction to the World of Asian American Genealogy” on Saturday, May 28, as part of the “Online at Home” series. Grant has specialized in Asian American research for over 35 years. He is a member of the CGS Board.
