This is just my way of researching. It is not professional. I’m just sharing the things I did to find information on my genealogy. Hope it helps.
With this tutorial we’re going to cover how to do research at the LDS website http://familysearch.org
This will take several pages, there’s so much you can do at this site.
Before I go on I’d just like to give you a link to the sponsor of this website

The first page you’ll see after you click the search button is this page, the All Resources page. Key in the last name you are searching and it’s advisable to click on Exact Spelling as well.
This is what will happen if you don’t click on Exact Spelling.
On the right side there’s a box with all the categories. The red arrows show the categories I go through (unless I’m looking for someone in Canada etc.).
On the left side of the page this is what you’ll see ~
this is the Ancestral File where when you click it most times it’ll have the submitter information. If you’re lucky that person will still have the same address and you can contact them for more information. I’ll show that page later. Right now we’re doing the general navigation.
Notice that all the ancestral files have Kauaua. Many will have a mixture of names if you don’t click on Exact Spelling.
Now let’s go to the International Genealogical Index. You can get there by clicking on the North American link above. Here is what you’ll see.
See all the different names that’ll show up?
So for your first search, especially if it’s a Kanaka name, just key in the last name in the search box and click on Exact Spelling.
More later (as I have time)

I’m pretty bummed because I didn’t get to go to the Kinney ohana reunion but we were well represented by my sister, her daughters and their partners and children.
When the Kinney ohana reunion was being planned we had all the intentions of going and then came…grandchild #1! and his first luau is on Aug. 28th so funds are really tight. Reunions come once every 10 years or so but my first grandchild’s 1st birthday luau comes once in a lifetime!
He’s such a character, smart, and a clown to boot!
This is what I do have…genealogy, mookuauhau of my ohana. This is information that I gathered, that I learned how to research myself but did not find the information myself. I just learned how to research information that other people already researched, like my Aunty Orpha Kaina. She did so much research already. Also, Uncle Donald McGwin and Aunty Rubellite Johnson and so many other aunties and uncles of mine.
To do this is tedious and time consuming and…very confusing at times! So, to endeavor to do this takes a lot. Needless to say, because of this not very many of us will take the time needed to research and to get facts straight. Oh, not to mention it also costs money to do research.
I’m hoping one of my children will treasure this research and keep it going generation to generation but so far I’m not seeing any interest. Of course, they’re still young…lord only knows I didn’t start with this passion until I was well into my 40s. By that time my kupunas had passed away…I couldn’t ask them anything.
So, if you are a researcher I give you lots of credit because I know how tedious it can be.
It is for that reason that I cannot do research for people however much I would Love to! I used to but someone has to make money for the household and guess what? I’m that someone!
I’m going to start a tutorial going through the processes that I use and I took when doing research and if there are any researchers out there that would like to comment and has more information that could help potential researchers you are warmly welcomed to do so! Mahalo!
