For decades, Amy Chin’s family carefully saved records, objects, and other personal artifacts. After discovering this trove of old family treasures in her late mother’s belongings, Amy began what she calls her ‘journey to unforgetting’. She combed through public and private sources to piece together her family’s immigration story which was later re-interpreted as a 12-panel comic book/graphic novel for the New York Historical Society’s exhibition "Chinese American Exclusion/Inclusion" and is now on permanent display at the Chinese Historical Society of America in San Francisco.
In addition to her own research, Amy teaches public workshop and provides select genealogy consultation services to private clients. Amy holds a B.A. in East Asian studies from Barnard College, Columbia University.
