World War II "Internment Camps" and Mass Incarceration in the U.S.

by Linda Harms Okazaki

When you hear the phrase “Internment Camps,” do you automatically assume this references the experience of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II? Or do you think of Alien Enemies detained at camps run by the U.S. Army or Department of Justice? Does terminology matter? Is there a difference? Why? Genealogist Linda Harms Okazaki will discuss the differences in terminology (colloquial, archival, and culturally respectful), review the events leading up to the incarceration of a wide range of people following the attack on Pearl Harbor, describe the experiences of those inmates, and most importantly, help you to understand and locate genealogically relevant records. 

This event is being held in memorial of Pearl Harbor Day.

Access will be through GoToWebinar. Instructions and Connectivity Link will be forwarded via email to all registrants upon registration, six days prior and again 1 hour prior to the event. Making the connection is quick and easy only requiring a computer and Internet connectivity from wherever you chose to watch the event. Your questions help drive the meetings, and we will be there to help each other.
