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.

E ahonui

  • 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.
