Leila L. Haiku-Tombstone Tuesday

This picture was taken by Geoff Stafford, who volunteers his time and taking pictures of gravesites on the Big Island.

Personal Hawaiian Genealogy Pages.

Hawaiian genealogy sure has come along way from the days when I first started searching the web back in 1998.  There were a handful of personal sites with info on Hawaiian genealogy back then and some are still around, the same site from the nineties frozen in time.  Some are updated and some vanished never to be seen again.  Here's a list of the personal pages (now called blogs?) I have bookmarked, that are still around...

Hawaiian Genealogy-Excellent site done by Dean Kekoolani, focusing on the chiefly genealogies as recorded by High Chief and master genealogist Solomon Lehuanui Kalaniomaiheuila. The Official Website of the Royal Family of Hawaii-A beautiful looking site with information on the royal families of Hawaii. Kanaka Genealogy-Probably one of the best sites on Hawaiian Genealogy.  Lots of information such as, ali'i mahele indices, anti aneexation petitions, tutorials, maps, oral stories, links to other Hawaiian genealogy sites. Kinimaka family website.
