Hawaii  County

a proud part of



Hello! I am Trish Elliott-Kashima, the Hawaii County coordinator for the HIGenWeb Project.    My husband's paternal ancestors lived on the Big Island for a few generations and his maternal family lived on Maui.   His family is scattered across the Islands.  I lived on Oahu as a child as my Dad was a Marine. We were there when Hawaii became a State in 1959, and was on the Big Island during the eruption of Kilauea Iki in 1959.  I do not live in

Hawaii now. 


The site is re-indexed every Monday.  If you see that I have uploaded new information before Monday about noon,  try using "control f" as a search tool for the page you are interested in, on that specific page.


New for June 10, 2016:  Some headstone applications for Military Veterans,

WWI and WWII. 


Please check out the Pierce Photo ID Project.  It is on the Lyman Museum and Mission House web site.  These photographs were taken between 1951 and the early 1970's.  There may be unidentified photos of your relatives that you can help with.


Another great repository of photos (over 50,000) are in the Jean Greenwell Library - a part of the Kona Historical Society.  They also have a large manuscript collection and an oral history project.


  All comments, suggestions and submissions are very welcome.  Please share photos and family trees and anything else to do with Hawaii County.   Email me here.  Check back often.
