There will be a hearing on the sale of the National Archives on Friday, February 12, 2021 at 9 a.m. (PST)
Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson and his team will be in federal court to ask for an injunction to immediately stop the sale.
The Zoom video version is only for the lawyers and the judge, but the public can listen in by calling (669) 254-5252, and at the prompt, put in the meeting ID: 161 786 3808.

I am researching a Portland Chinese immigrant, Lee Mee Ginn (b. 1853). He was president of the Peace Society and of the Chinese Empire Association. He owned a farm and was married to Ling (Lena) Wong. He had 9 children. I am looking for his photo. Have you come across this man? He is my elderly cousin’s grandfather. Thank you.
NARA is still closed because of Covid but the staff is now coming in a couple days a week. They are work on the backlog of requests. Send them your request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Do you know when he arrived in the U.S.? Give them as much information as possible to help with their search. Good luck.

I wanted to let you know that Seattle NARA came through and I received 181 pages of CEA files with photos and details no one ever knew! I have enough basic info to write cohesively about the family! Thanks for your research which I find fascinating!
Do you know what the initials T.C. followed by a number mean after the question “When did you come to the U.S.?”
Hi, Could you send me a scan of the area you had the questions about? re: Do you know what the initials T.C. followed by a number mean after the question “When did you come to the U.S.?”
