About the Japanese Immigration Index

The information for this database comes primarily from newspaper articles, census records, and personal correspondences collected and developed by Susan Sunada and shared with the author. The database provides a wealth of information on the Issei and Nisei generations of Japanese Americans who worked and/or lived in Utah and Idaho. This data base is intended to be used as a guide or starting point from which researchers can begin a more in depth study of specific individuals. The original compilation of information created by Sunada can be found in the Utah State University, Merrill-Cazier Library, Special Collections and Archives Division.
