Hawaiian Newspapers In Digital Collection

The Chronicling America digital newspaper collection at the Library of Congress website has several newspapers that will interest those researching in Hawaii.

You can browse each newspaper by clicking on the link.  To search newspapers go to Search Newspaper Pages.  From here you can search all newspapers in the collection, narrow it down to a state, or narrow it down to a specific newspaper.

I did a search on the phrase “Kilauea Sugar Plantation”.  I found this history of the Kilauea Sugar Plantation.  Interestingly enough, it mentions one of my distant relatives, Joseph Iida.  Joseph was the first husband of my Grandfather’s cousin, Louisa Pacheco (daughter of Antonion Pacheco and Alexandrinha Jose).  Joseph was the assistant bookkeeper when this article was published 25 March 1909.
