I learned this week that the Portuguese Genealogical Society of Hawaii no longer has copies of the book Portuguese Hawaiian Memories for sale.
Did you know that the book has been indexed by some wonderful volunteers and can be found on my website, YourIslandRoutes.com? You’ll find the indexes divided by island under Portuguese Hawaiian Memories.
If you are not familiar with the book, there are many brief biographies of Portuguese people living in the Hawaiian Islands ca. 1930. Most entries include the names of parents and children, birth place, and other tidbits like occupation. Some biographies have a photograph as well.
The book is indexed by name of the main person in the biography. The indexes on YourIslandRoutes.com give the person’s parents names, spouse’s name, and the spouse’s parents’ names.
I have a copy of the book and will copy any entry for a $3 fee (this helps pay for YourIslandRoutes.com). Please see the link above for information on how to order a copy from me. (Please do not leave your request in the comments to this blog as I may not see them or have a way to respond to you directly.)
