Join the Bay Area Chinese Genealogy Group (BACGG) in a Zoom presentation by author and historian Russell N. Low, exploring  the early Chinese American Experience and its effects on Chinese Americans of the Greatest Generation in WWII with ripples that continue to shape our experience today .

In a multimedia presentation, Russell Low will share a story that took decades to uncover using long-forgotten letters, old photos, interviews, and historical archives. 

Russell Low is a California-born 4th-generation Chinese American physician who is a great-grandson of Hung Lai Wah, a Transcontinental Railroad worker, and Tom Ying, a rescued child slave. Russell’s passion for research, family history, and storytelling come together in recently published novels entitled “Three Coins” and “The All-American Crew.”
