Re: GENEALOGY OF THE TANAKA CLAN
My wife's grandparents were Tanaka from Hiroshima-ken.The came from a small village called Mubeyama-mura now part of Fukuyama city.
We recently found relatives there, but we were lucky.Hiroshima ken is a big area and Tanaka is a VERY common name.
My wife's gr-grandfather was Tokyuju Tanaka born about 1860.Her grandfather was Saichi Tanaka born 1881.He left Japan for Hawaii in 1905 then went on to California in 1915.
Saichi's brother who stayed in Japan was Uematsu Tanaka.We found the son of Uematsu still living in Fukuyama city.
Do you have any names or locations for your Tanaka branch?
