This week I’ve selected a book that most Hawaiian genealogists should find interesting. It’s the Hawaiian Almanac and Annual for 1887: on matters relating to the Hawaiian Islands, original and selected, of value to merchants, planters, tourists, and others. Compiled by Thos. G. Thrum. 1886 : Honolulu Press Publishing Co.
The table of contents includes such items as holidays, census information, school statistics, sugar plantations and mills, and a host of other information. There is a 4 page chapter titled “Portuguese Immigration to the Hawaiian Islands”. There is also a section called “Lessons from the 1884 Census”, which I thought was interesting.
You can access the book from Google Books. From there you can download it to an ereader or other device. Or, you can read it here:
