I am searching for an black/japanese orphan girl who was born between Sept 1946- May 1948.
My father has passed was serving in the military during this time. Before his passing he shared that he had fathered a daughter in Japan. Are there any suggestions you could offer me in terms of searching for her. I have even completed a DNA with ancestry.com. Thank you.
please write directly to:
I am a lone person writing about the issues, but for searching for family members for Amerasians from Japan, it might be best to contact: Amerasian Foundation. http://amerasianfoundation.org
Japanese are so prejudice, normal mothers would not give that many children up, the families force them to I’m a Blackanese, my maternal grandfather accepted me. The only time he even acknowledged me was he was shown my Marine Corps photo. My mother said he looked at it and nodded his head and said “Hunh”!
He never accepted me. Where those children now?
