These are old reunion and ohana search messages from May 2007 but the information is still good. There are some questions as to names of ancestor’s with contact information should any reader connect with one of the names.
The reason I copy and paste this information is because some of the information given will someday be wiped clean due to updates and such.
Here is the link to the Ka Wai Ola Issue of May 207 —>>> Ka Wai Ola
