This is the Certificate of identity issued to my grandfather Bok Ying Chin at the Port of Seattle in 1913. At 36 years old, he was newly married and left his bride in China expecting their first child. Because of the Chinese Exclusion laws at that time, he was not able to bring her to the United States.My Paternal Grandfather Bok Ying Chin
