Notes:
Four Kamikawa brothers emigrated from Japan to Fresno, California just before the turn of the 20th Century. They married and started a merchant business which operated in several cities and later expanded the business to include banking, a hotel, grocery, restaurant, public bath, vineyard and other enterprises. Family members were interned at a camp in Arkansas during World War II, and after the war settled in New Jersey. Members of the Omata Family, a brother and two sisters, also emigrated to California in the 1890s, though the sisters eventually returned to Japan. The Omata Family also established a merchant business in California. Some members of the Omata family were also interned and they too eventually settled on the East Coast.
Summary:
Four volumes of genealogical information compiled on the Kamikawa and Omata families. The volumes include ancestry charts, copies of photographs, letters, interviews, and copies of official documents such as diplomas and naturalization papers.
