      Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
       
      Monday, September 10, 2012, 7 p.m.
       
      "Jewish Immigration Through Angel Island"
       
       
      Maria Sakovich will present a two-part program, focusing first on Jewish emigration from Russia to the West Coast, 1910-1940, and the reception at the Angel Island Immigration Station.  The second half of her presentation will explore immigration documents that can aid family historians: passenger arrival indexes, ship manifests, immigrant files and transcripts of immigration hearings.
       
      Maria Sakovich is a public historian and independent scholar who researches, writes and develops exhibits related to immigration, family and community history.  The focus of her next book is the experience of Russian refugees who arrived in the Bay Area in the 1920s, prompted by her own family's experience at Angel Island and beyond.
