Scope and Contents note

Trokusha kdo [characters] [Registrants' cards]. 5 × 8 index cards, each of which contains various items of information on a Japanese male and his family members, residing within the jurisdiction of the Japanese Consulate of Los Angeles (Counties of Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, and Ventura in the state of California; and the states of Arizona and New Mexico), who completed the required registration at the Consulate.
Initially, these cards were prepared to serve as the data base for the issuance of various certificates required by Japanese government laws and regulations and the United States Immigration Law, as well as for the purpose of compiling census or other statistical reports. The cards are grouped into three major sets.

Entries on each card include: names and place of birth, social status (shizoku [characters] or heimin [characters]), marital status, profession or occupation, names and ages of family members, their relationships to the household-head (kach [characters]), the date of arrival and the port of original entry, property holdings (if farming, whether or not the family owned land and how many acres they were farming), and current address.
