Subject: Rogrigues Geneology Sunday, April 26, 1998 1:27 PM

I am attempting to put together a family tree for my husband's family. His mother was Muriel Rodrigues born 11/25/1918 in Lahaina, Maui. Her father was Willie Rogrigues born around 1883 in Honolulu, Oahu. His occupation is listed on Muriel's birth certificate as plantation laborer. Muriel's mother was Minnie Lopez , born around 1891 in what looks like "Haiuakuapoho" Maui. Her occupation is listed as housewife. Do you have any idea where I can find birth information or death information on either of these people. Muriel's birth certifiate lists both parents as Portuguese. I am very interested in learning when the family came to Hawaii and any other information that may be available. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Date: 13 Sep 1998

I am in search of some ancestors mostly based in Hana Maui A woman named HALAKAIPO who died in 1875? who was married to KEPANO who died in Kohala in 1897? Their daughter was called Kukona'ala'a who married a danish man named Frederick WITTROCK, who died in 1913 in Honolulu. If any one connects up with any of these people it would be great to hear from you--the KUKONA'ALA'A supposedly goes back to Kauai to King Kukona, and he links back to Tahiti back in the 1300's. I just have to find all the inbetween links from the Puna line to current--its exciting!
