Search Tips


Genealogy Research Tips

1. Your family is a great starting place!
Find out as much as you can from your parents, grandparents, aunties, uncles, etc. They might be able to provide you with essential information and/or give you leads on where to search.

2. Keep track of what you find.
Use a genealogy or family tree chart to keep track of your ancestors. Save your records in one place and keep track of where you looked.

3. Ask for Help.
Librarians and Archvists can help lead you to more sources. For additional genealogy research, visit UH Mānoa's Hamilton Library, the Hawaiʻi State Library, and the Hawaiʻi State Archives.
