    I’ve known Linda Harms Okazaki since 2013, when I first attended her workshop on Finding Your Japanese Roots. Since then, we’ve partnered together on many occasions, including as founding members of NikkeiGen (www.facebook.com/nikkegen). Each workshop or webinar that she delivers is always so fresh and informative – and there are always new nuggets of info to take away. Thank you, Linda, for continuing to share your wealth of knowledge with all of us.

    No Japanese-American in my tree but the information was so interesting and nicely presented. Plus I used to live in Santa Maria, California and it was nice to see there is a museum there. I have also heard some of the information before about the Japanese because of the San Diego Historical Society. Thank you!
