I would like to get in touch with any relatives of Jitsuo Hanafusa (who I believe lived in Gardena, California, up to the time of his passing) or of his brother Tangen (who was a Buddhist priest in Kyoto). I am a granddaughter of their youngest brother (Jujiro), and am interested in finding more about their side of the family (I`ve only had contact with the Japanese side, not the Nikkei side).
I have looked into our family history somewhat, and it can be traced back rather far. (From what I understand, there were two main branches of the Hanafusa family-one in Okayama Prefecture and one in Fukuoka Prefecture). I would be happy to share this information, although I`m really only just beginning to look into it.
Thank you for your time!
