‘Ohana means family

5 Oct

Since the early 90s, I’ve immersed myself in collecting genealogy–my own and that of others–literally “Shakin Trees”. Over the last year, I’ve made many more discoveries about my ‘Ohana (family) near and far and the Shakin Trees blog will be my touchstone for sharing research, family treasures and hopefully connecting with distant cousins.

October is Family History month and I’m shifting my genealogy efforts into high gear.  Feeling like i’m getting a good start:

  • Visited and enrolled as a member today with the Portuguese Genealogical & Historical Society of Hawaii
  • Have a second genealogy lunch date setup with my Aunt and family historian mentor
  • Enrolled in a few Familytreeuniversity.com webinars and being sure to enter the daily drawing
  • Watching for the Tuesday questions/contest from Geni.com
  • Got a lead to contact a Keanini relative to help collaborate and plan the genealogy for the 2012 Akana ‘Ohana Reunion in Hilo next summer.
  • Got some 3 inch binders to organize some papers on each of my grandparent’s lines.
  • Helping edit and write a “memory book” entry for another Aunt for her high school reunion
Overall October will be a wonderful month of ‘Ohana time and sharing.
