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)
