Chinese Organizations in S.F. : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I am looking for some organizations that i could contact to get information on the Chinese imigration to California in the 1880's-1910 and if there are any museums/collections in the area that i might be able to get into, look at etc.

Thanks for anything you can give me!
