In the Hawaiian language, Ohana means family, and this project has been created to help link together the families of Hawai'i into a bigger tree, and ultimately to the World Family Tree.

The geographic isolation of Hawai'i provides, in essence, a "small town" of a million inhabitants. Everyone is your auntie's cousin's brother-in-law's nephew, or so it seems. This is readily demonstrated by picking any current obituary in a Hawai'i newspaper and Googling the names of the deceased and their survivors to find additional obituaries. Before you know it, three or four other families are linked together, spanning two or three islands in the chain.

  1. If you find your late auntie, uncle or tutu in this project, please join as a collaborator and add more of your family.
  2. If you're building your own tree, please join as a collaborator, add your deceased relatives to the project, and google them to see who else you're linked to through them.
