Have you ever wanted to learn your family orgins in Japan? For Japanese American families, the Koseki, the Japan’s family Registry record, is a powerful tool to learn about their ancestors and a way to keep the family’s history alive for generations to come.

The Koseki records an individual’s birthplace, and date, marital status, siblings and other vital information. While local municipalities keep these records, they are not kept indefinitely. Once they have reached their expiration date, the records will be destroyed.

Now is the time to research your family’s Koseki, before that information is gone forever. We provide services to research your family’s Koseki in Japan on your behalf and provide you with the “Root” information to begin your search for your family tree.
