Japanese Americans were allowed to take only what they could carry to the camps. In most cases, a person could take two bags. Each bag was marked with an identification tag. These tags belonged to Mae Iseri who was initially detained at the Pinedale Assembly Center in California. Mae and her family were later incarcerated at Tule Lake, California. The Iseris' family number was 16799.
