  • I'm searching for a Kalohe and Wailua children were Naakakai Umikalakaua Poololee and Kealoi

  • Trying to find Nā 'Ohana o Luhiau(Lohiau,Loheau,Loeau), Keohokapu, Nueku, Keawehawai'i, Kamake'e, Makulu, Kupuka'a.

    My mother is a Luhiau/Kupuka'a. I am a descendant of all these families. 

  • 2766676212?profile=originalAnother old lady from Waimea, Kaua'i is about to pass away. 

    She "walked with Our Queen".  Does that interest anyone ??

  • 2766676572?profile=originalIs it any wonder that the Kanaka Maoli are cautious

    about signing anything or submitting their genealogy ??

  • Aloha,

    I 've been trying to research my geneology from various stand points.  I was adopted before I was born and only recently within these past couple years discovered a very wide spread of names.  My biological Mom Kanani was adopted by the Karrattis.

    My  Mom's biological Mom, Abigail was born to Eddie and Rose Kaiwa.  

    Eddie Kaiwa's Mom, my Great Great Grandmother was Keliimoeone Nuuhiwa.

    The Nuuhiwa name goes back centuries from what I've read and is linked to hundreds of other surnames via blood, marriage, or adoption.  The name even goes back to the 11th, 12th century of when Chief Maweke existed.

    I realize that my roots are vast hailing from Kauai, some from Molokai, Hawaii island, French Polynesia.  I'm sure there are people on this site that are related to the Nuuhiwa name somehow.  If you have any info, I would love to hear from you.

    I have a list of the surnames linked to Nuuhiwa.  Send me a shout out.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    I am also seeking info, regarding the surname Kealoha, which was my Great Great Grandmother's surname (Rose Carroll's Mom).  Leialoha Kealoha was her name.

  • I am trying to trace the Poepoe line..I got up to Kamailolo Paaoao, father of John S. Poepoe of Honuaula, Maui.  Anyone know the genealogy before that?

  • aloha! I love reading everyone's posts. Thank you for being so thorough. 

    I am researching my Ohana from multiple points on my grandfather's side (William K Namahoe): NAMAHOE, HONUNAKAHA, PUU, WONGHOE, KAUHOLA, KUAMO'O. The oral legend in our Ohana is that we are descended from High Chief Heulu and his son Keawe-a-Heulu.

    On my grandmother's (Catherine Waiola Wong) side I am researching: WONG, HILINA'I, SPENCER, LEVY, KA'UPENA to name a few. (My 2nd great grandmother was Cecelia Ku'ualoha Kaupena-who allegedly was a lady in waiting for Queen Liliuokalani). My Tutu Ku'ualoha descends from KAHAOPULANI (the Hanai mother of Kamehameha I). My grandmother and her family talk that their genealogy hails from the Pele line.

    Since my Tutu Namahoe was not raised by his family, our genealogy is scant.

    And I sadly was not raised by my own father and have had to acquire most of my information the old fashioned way (which I love!). Thank OHANA and Malama Pono.

Edward Papoko Macomber

Edward Papoko Macomber was my grandfather, father to my dad Ralph Kawaionamolokama Macomber, and husband to Elizabeth Werner.

Elizabeth developed a relationship with another man who eventually murdered her in front of her children, and then killed himself. Ralph was married to Muriel Gail Nohea Kahoopii in Oahu and they bore three sons (Ralph Jr., Paulson, and Reynolds) and three daughters…

Kaohi: Genealogies are surely important to our people to understand and take it into their souls.

Often times one would run up against something related to a person negatively.  Yesterday, I had to as my students to look at a destructive anger as something that is positive.  And construct a positive from a negative.   I had to explain that the rage and anger gets down to your bones and sometimes harbor there until one gets a disease. The other talk that I had to give to my student that rage or anger that harbors are sometimes forgotten, but continues without consciousness of what the real…
