Did You Know?
An important collection of compiled genealogies for Hawaii is found in the Cole-Jensen Collection : Oral Genealogies and Genealogical Information Collected from the Polynesian Peoples and from the Pacific Islands. These records were collected over a 50 year period and microfilmed in 1984 by the Genealogical Society of Utah. The original collection consisted of 51 binders. The original materials no longer exist as an intact collection.  However, there are nine microfilms 1358001-1358009 available at various family history centers. This collection contains family group records, pedigree charts and oral genealogies collected from the Pacific Islands of Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Niue, Cook Islands, and French Polynesia including the Society, Marquesas, Austral Islands, and the Tuamotu Archipelago.  The Hawaiian genealogies can be found on the following microfilms: 1358001, 1358002, 1358003, 1358004, 1358006, 1358007, and 1358008.

Less than 1 percent of Hawaii's population is pure-blooded Hawaiian. Many immigrant groups originally came as contract laborers to work in the sugar fields. The Chinese began arriving in 1852, followed by the Portuguese in 1878, the Japanese in 1884, Koreans in 1903, and Filipinos in 1906. Those of Japanese descent presently constitute about 30 percent of the total population, and are the largest ethnic group in Hawaii. American missionaries from New England started coming in 1820, but the number of Americans was not significant until about 1875.
