aloha, i was going through the geneaology research here on this site and saw that you was asking any references on your great-grandfather John Kalaukoa.. I don't know much about him myself but i believe that my great grandmother and him to be brother and sister, which makes us ohana.. if you need more information on him a can put you into contact with my cousin, who did the Kalaukoa mo'kuauhau..
I started doing genealogy about 4 years ago. I found that I'm very good at it and it has become a passion. I have had great successes with our own family genealogy and last year we had a family reunion that brought several lines of our family together for the first time. The research is fascinating and so very rewarding. I feel privileged to use my talents to help others when I can. I'm happy I was helpful to you.
I saw your comment at the genealogy group area. I do genealogy and did a little search on John Kaimi Kalaukoa. There is an entry at FamilySearch submitted by Dayle Kalama Turner. I don't know how long ago the entry was made but the address for Dayle is 45-519 Apiki St., Kaneohe, 96744. Also, John Kaimi Kalaukoa died October 19, 1982. I suggest going to the library and search the newspaper obituaries for his. Obituaries give you names of survivors and that information could help you find your `ohana.
I hope this helps.
Thanks for chatting. It's different at this site, more personal to express our mana'o with being uncomfortable. Reminds me of face book, just less games to play. Perhaps the site coordinator will implement Hawaiian games/legends or history too. It's a good way to educate others too!
Just chatting...Do you have family on Moloka'i and Maui. I went to school with a classmate by last name of Kekahuna. He says he related to me cause his 'ohana from Keanae/Hana. My mother side is Akuna from Keanae.
Aloha Vaiola...what heartfelt words you've shared. I loved Uncle Al because he was so `olu`olu and non-judgmental. And he took care of his kids. I have thought of the whole Iokepa family much this year. Love you all...Aunty Ku`ulei
