  • Curious off-topic :D

    Hi everyone, this is more towards Dileon and everyone else living in Hawaii... My great-great grandmother came from Hawaii in the late 1800s... Came to the Azores Islands that is. Any idea who or what institution i could contact in order to try to trace any relatives (well, relatives is a relative word ) there?

    Need more information as to what race and ethnic group? I will tell you do not know much about this subject. But I will do some research. Just will note one thing, ....getting data is always easy here due to the fact a lot was not recorded as Hawaii was not a US territory until late 1889 and Hawaii was not a state until 1959. Which means she left when the monarchy ruled? I would start here....

        I think it was in 1870, but i'm going to confirm that... I'm just curious. In the past 5 or so years pretty much all of my family died from cancer (all the male did). I think she was caucasian but i'm not sure of that... Gonna ask my mother, she'll know more details. Thank you.

          Ok I found something interesting....wondering if she is apart of this group and went back home? The Hawaiian census of 1878 showed that, out of a kingdom of 57,985 people, only 438 residents, which was less than 0.8% of the population, were Portuguese.[2] Most of these Portuguese residents had been born in either the Azores or Madeira Islands, and nearly all had arrived as sailors on whaling ships. Although only a few brought their wives or were joined by them later, women made up only about one-eighth of this tiny immigrant community.[3] Despite the fact that prior to 1878 so few Portuguese had made their way to the Hawaiian Islands, those that did found opportunity and tended to stay.[
