This section contains printed books on Chinese American history and genealogy. It is not meant to be exhaustive, but rather, it is a representative list of resources that may be helpful to those doing research on their Chinese family histories. Unless indicated otherwise, the books can be found in libraries located in Los Angeles and its surrounding areas. Most can be borrowed from the Los Angeles Public (City) Library and the Los Angeles County Library systems by anyone with a valid library card. Many books are also available as ebooks which can be loaned from a library, or purchased on Amazon. If you live outside of the Los Angeles area, consult your local library for their holdings.
