Chinese in California
10/1/2003
The Library of Congress creates a Web site about the history of 19th-and early 20th-century Chinese immigrants to California.
The Library of Congress has created a Web site tracing the history of 19th-and early 20th-century Chinese immigrants to California. The Chinese in California, 1850-1925 <memory.loc.gov/ammem/award99/cubhtml> not only follows the journeys of the Chinese to America, but also features about 8,000 images and pages of primary-source materials, including original art, letters, business records, legal documents, menus and speeches.

Start by clicking on Special Presentation: Topical Overview — Essays & Galleries to access nine galleries highlighting San Francisco's Chinatown community, the anti-Chinese movement and exclusion, Chinese populations outside San Francisco and more. You can also read a series of essays that introduce you to the development of Chinatown in San Francisco. Then, browse the collection by keyword, subject, group or theme to uncover its other gems.

From the October 2003 Family Tree Magazine
