Hope Siyi forum members will come. While in New York, you can maybe also visit your family/clan association in Chinatown; access some Chinese Exclusion Act case files or immigration records at the National Archives; or conduct some research at the New York Public Library's Milstein Division of U.S. History, Local History & Genealogy (one of the largest genealogical collections in the country).
