Sarukura Enters Best WordPress Design Contest

This weekend, Keller of Fresh eVenture invited me to enter Sarukura into their Best WordPress Design Contest. Hopefully, this will draw some publicity and new traffic to this site to get the word out about my Japanese surname.

Sarukura Family Tree

These are all the names of the Sarukura family that I found on a Family Register from June 1956. The paper is old and some parts were hard to read, so some of the spellings may be off.

About Sarukura

Sarukura is a blog about my Japanese heritage.

After my grandmother, Akiko Sarukura, married my grandfather and moved to the United States, she lost contact with her family in Japan. The only things I know about them I have learned from stories here and there, old documents, and very few photos.

On this site, I will share everything I know about my grandmother’s family in hopes that one day, someone who knows more about the Sarukura family or can help me learn more about them will contact me.

Find out more about the Sarukura family via the Sarukura Family Tree, and see the only photo of the Sarukura family I have.
