Japanese heritage question

Classification: Query
Surnames: Weir
I am trying to get information for my daughter in law concerning her maternal grandmother. The only information I have is - Her name was Chieko, She was born 9/5/1932 in Japan, Married a G I Named Robert Leroy Weir, was on Pan Am flight 864/15 from Tokyo to San Francisco 15 Aug 1957 and died in California on 2/5/2004. She was divorced from Robert Weir at sometime before her death ans was never remarried as far as I know.

I have never tried getting any immigration info before and am lost with Japanese heritage. Any suggestions on how to get more information about her life pre 1957?

Thanks
John P Pate
Boyce, La.

Do you know Chieko's surname and where she was from?

My Japanese mother is from the same era as your daughter-in-law's maternal grandmother. I did actually find some good information via Ancestry.com when I found the ship manifest from her journey here in 1952. I would start by searching for Chieko Weir and see what turns up on Ancestry.

If you know her surname and where she was from, it might be a little easier to find information about Chieko. Is your daughter-in-law's half-Japanese parent still living? They might be a good source of information.
