Tips for Your Genealogy Journey
Ask your ʻohana!
- They are the best resource for information regarding your family. They can be a good starting point for names, dates, and relationships. Your ʻohana will also be able to contextualize the historical information you find with personal moʻolelo.
Keep good notes & always make copies
- Use pedigree charts, collections activity logs, etc. to document your search -- you don't want to have to repeat sections of your research. Also, be sure to leave master & official documents at home when you visit other repositories -- take copies with you.
- Genealogy research is life-long work. It may be complicated and frustrating at times. But the connections you make with your ʻohana (past and present) throughout the process is so rewarding.
