This book of genealogies, Kumuhonua, was copied from the Honolulu Archives, Book #44, back in the eighties. This book contains mostly ancient genealogies, with some lines leading into the 19th century. You will not find very many modern family connections in this book. In this book, Kumuhonua, you will find pieces of information not available in other published genealogies. For example, Fornander states that he doesn't know from which family descends Kapoleia Kauila, the wife of Kalanikukuma. Her genealogy is included in this book. Also, see the marriage between ‘Umikanaha (kaikaina of Kuwalupakumoku) and Kamaleamaka(kaikuahine/kaikua’ana of Piliwale), thus tying the Kalona branch of O’ahu to the ali’i of Kaua’i. This type of information is valuable for historians of ancient Hawai'i. So much of this kind of information is still available at the Honolulu Archives, Bishop Museum and other libraries. This book was chosen mostly because it was easy to read, as the old style of writing is very difficult to read; but also because it had some good stuff. I'm hoping that more people will post genealogies on Ulukau for educational purposes. Maybe even a grant can be obtained to pay for more archive books to be typed and posted. You will see that some names are misspelled. I am a poor typist, but also, I typed the names as I saw it, even if I knew the name to be usually spelled in another fashion. One major thing that was added was the line numbers. This is for citing this book as a reference. Names should be cited with page number and line number (Kumuhonua 15,4). This is similar to what was done in the typed Malo genealogy that is floating around. Also, when you see a few names followed by this symbol: } That means that there was a big one covering all of those names, as they are siblings. I just don't know how to make a big one on the computer. So I hope that you find this book useful, and hopefully Ulukau will become a forum for others to share information with one another.
