JAPANESE RESIDENTS OF SHERIDAN COUNTY
This index (along with detailed information) was compiled using the following resources:
The Anglo officials who wrote the records often had difficulty with Japanese names. The same name could be written several different ways in several different records. Rather than try to standardize spellings, names were transcribed either exactly as found in the printed record, or as could best be deciphered from handwritten documents. We apologize for any inaccuracies. Researchers are encouraged to check all possible spellings.
