My Own Journey to find my Family History and Kamon
When both my parents died suddenly, I started to research our own family ancestry and kamon so that our family history would not be lost with their generation. (To find out what I found out about my own family, check out My family's kamon and history). As a result I accumulated a library of books on Japanese family names/ancestry and kamon, and decided to use those to help other Japanese-Americans research theirs as well.
