Happy Thanksgiving Holiday to Everyone!


·      Thank You to All Our Supporters:

During this Thanksgiving season, we thank you heartily for all your support to T. A. Archives’ projects in the past 4 years. We have collected, organized and displayed more than ten thousands of historicalinformation and artifacts in T. A. Archives’ website and Center in Irvine, CA.

For the members of the Article Committee, thank youfor lots of readings and votings on the submitted articles. We will have 917 articlesof “My Stories” and “Our Journeys”.

Most of us believe that one of important tasks for us now is to have a T. A. history, prepared by T. A. in place.  Let us assume this responsibility togetherfor the coming years.

·      Who Are Taiwanese Americans?

Since 1949, we have up to 5 generations and more than one million of TaiwaneseAmericans in the U.S.A. now.It becomes an undeniable portion of U. S. immigration history.

Who are T. A.? We would like to raise this question for all of us to ponder. Followings are our suggestions for discussions and debate amongus:

There are two criteria for considering a person to be a T. A.:

1. He/She has connection or relation with Taiwan and Taiwanese
2. He/She has/had U. S. Citizenship or Permanent Resident Card.

Followings are the routes for becoming T. A.:

1. As graduate students or medical professionals
2. As young students
3. By marriage to a T. A.
4. Decedents of a T. A.
5. Relatives of a T. A. thru immigration
6. Business investments in the U. S.
7. Having special skills needed in the U. S. labor market
8. Established scholars, professionals and sport players
9. Students from Taiwan, studying in the U. S. and other countries and married to Americans
10. Taiwanese Employees sent to work in the U. S. by their companies. Then, become Americans thru legal channels
11. Marriage of a Taiwanese to U. S. officers, military personnel, etc
12. Political and other kinds of refugees
13. Oversea Taiwanese and their descendants become U. S. Citizen thru immigration quotas of other countries.
14. Adoption by T. A. Family
15. Americans serve in Taiwan and become Taiwanese Citizens
16. Americans like to be Taiwanese voluntarily
17. Americans work for Taiwanese American organizations and become the leader of his/her organization.
18. Enter the U. S. illegally and become legal citizens thru legal channels
19. Miscellaneous routes

We consider an American who has Citizenship or Permanent Residency by Taiwan authority is a T. A. too.

A. Archives Center and website. Those are the legacies of your hard working lifein the U. S., deserved to be saved and viewed by your descendants and others.
