Hawaiian Genealogy Research For Those in Hawaii, the United States and Abroad..........compiled by Amelia Gora (2013)




Thanks to the internet, much genealogies can be researched on the web.....

Awaiaulu is dedicated to fostering Hawaiian knowledge today through the training of translators and publication of legacy texts. Fluent students of Hawaiian mentor with experienced translators, bringing historical literature to modern readers in a bilingual format. This develops new resource people, introduces information from these narratives to new audiences, and gives new access to Hawaiian-language texts.

Awaiaulu provides access to Hawaiian language texts, empowers the publication process, and provides a setting where the skills and insights necessary for such efforts can be mastered. The goal is to foster Hawaiian mores, values and stories by moving the narratives that illustrate them out of the archives and into the hands of resource people and readers today. A great body of important Hawaiian literature lies beyond the reach of most people, archived for more than a century. The language and the knowledge contained in these works are wonderful resources for the 21st century.

Bishop Museum

The Bishop Museum was founded in 1889 by Charles Reed Bishop in memory of his wife Bernice Pauahi Bishop, the last direct descendant of King Kamehameha I. Today, the Museum is recognized as the principal museum of the Pacific, housing the world’s largest collection of Hawaiian and Pacific artifacts and natural history specimens. More than 340,000 people visit the Museum each year, including over 40,000 schoolchildren.

Ka‘iwakiloumoku means “the ‘iwa bird that hooks the islands together,” a traditional reference to our great and revered warrior-king, Kamehameha ‘Ekahi. It is a name that recalls Kamehameha’s efforts to unite the Hawaiian Islands some 200 years ago. It is also a reflection of Na Kanaka Maoli – Native Hawaiians – coming together to revitalize Hawaiian language and culture to ensure a vibrant Hawaiian society in the 21st century.

The Ka‘iwakiloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center consists of two major components: 1) the Hawaiian Cultural Center facility, and 2) the Hawaiian Cultural Center programs. While efforts have been underway to garner support for the construction of the Center, there have also been concurrent efforts to help develop the cultural character of our people and the campus environment via program offerings.

Ka‘iwakiloumoku is dedicated to providing opportunities to learn Hawaiian knowledge – ‘ike Hawai‘i – and to live and practice Hawaiian culture as a vibrant way of life –nohona Hawai‘i. These efforts are guided by statements that articulate a vision for the Native Hawaiian people, a “Lahui Vision” – He Nu‘ukia Lahui Hawai‘i. In this light, we continually strive to affirm our mission to ensure a vibrant Hawaiian society – e ku ke ola i ka moku – in the 21st century and beyond.

Kumu Pono Associates

Kepa Maly and Onaona Pomroy Maly have worked on ethnographic studies in historic preservation for over thirty years (Kumu Pono Associates LLC, since 1995). Living away from O'ahu, research was always an expensive undertaking with travel from outer islands, and other expenses to just get to the archival collections. Around the year 2000, they began exploring the possibility of digitizing key collections of historical resouce materials.

Since then, they have independently or in partnership, digitize and re-indexed the entire Mahele 'Aina, Boundary Commission Proceedings, Royal Patent Grants, the Harvard Collection of ABCFM Hawai'i records, Register Maps, and portions of the Bureau of Conveyances Library Collection, along with portions of other documentary resources. Kumu Pono Associates LLC has also partner with the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Kamehameha Schools and Ulukau in sharing digital collections and ethnographic studies.

While digitizing records does not directly equal preservation of those records, it does lead to ease of access, and lightens the impact of handling sensitive records.

The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy’s mission is to preserve the plants, animals, and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive. In Hawai‘i, our goal is to actively manage our native ecosystems and species, to sustain them into the future. Working with partners, threats are abated, health of ecosystems on land and sea are restored and maintained, and our unique island biodiversity is carried forward as an irreplaceable asset, meeting human needs and fulfilling ecosystem functions that serve all life in the islands. TNC in Hawai‘i maintains a network of preserves, participates in watershed and other conservation partnerships, helps protect important natural areas, and works to strengthen policies and capacity for conservation in Hawai‘i.

Ulukau - The Hawaiian Electronic Library

Ulukau: In the same way that unexplained supernatural interpretive powers can be divinely given to a person, so knowledge and understanding can come to the person who makes the effort to read the language and words of this electronic library.

What is Ulukau? Ulukau is a digital online library for mostly Hawaiian language materials, though some Hawai‘i related materials in English can also be found on it. You will find searchable Hawaiian language dictionaries, online newspapers, books, the Hawaiian Bible, genealogy, māhele and other place name resources and much more.

Ulukau was founded as the Hawaiian Electronic Library in 2005. It involves dozens of partners, and is spearheaded by these two organizations: Hale Kuamo'o of Ka Haka 'Ula O Ke'elikōlani College of Hawaiian Language at UH Hilo and Ka Waihona Puke 'Ōiwi Native Hawaiian Library at ALU LIKE.
