In their over 175 years in this country, Asian Americans have faced many obstacles to their immigration, employment, and livelihood. The silver lining is that these laws resulted in many documents that can help researchers track these pioneers as they sought to overcome these barriers. Learn how these and other materials can help your research from genealogist Grant Din.

Grant Din has conducted genealogical research for over forty years and currently serves on the board of the California Genealogical Society and has presented workshops to many national and local genealogical societies, libraries, and universities. He has worked with the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation and other Bay Area nonprofits and government offices. Grant's interest in genealogy started at a wedding reception in his youth, where a relative showed him a page from a family tree showing he is in the 36th generation of the Gong family (he's also a 24th generation Owyang). Grant holds a Certificate in Genealogical Research from Boston University, an M.A. in public policy analysis from Claremont Graduate University, a B.A. in sociology with emphasis on urban studies from Yale University, and has traveled throughout the U.S., China, and Japan for his research. Grant was a part of the research team for The Six, a film about the Chinese seamen who survived the Titanic.
