HCGS 13 July 2013 - Honolulu Genealogical Resources

The program for the Honolulu County Genealogical Society meeting of Saturday July 13th, 2013, included the Immigrant to Hawaii in 1892 - Hiram Moore.  The path of a New York family was discussed and how to dig through Honolulu records to find the roots he (and others) planted in Hawaii.  Interesting Hawaii church, business and royalty connections were discovered. 

 How to do some routine and some unusual genealogical searches in Honolulu was described. This wonderful power point presentation was given by member,  Harriet Hoffman.

 News and hints from the genealogy world were given.   
We had time for Stan Jones and Kathy Hudson to briefly discuss their favorite  discovery/great website/ genealogy question / favorite ancestor/ question / or other genealogy related topic.
