Ka ‘Ohana O’Kalaupapa

In August of 2003, our wonderful friend Valerie Monson, who helped us to make my mother’s “Footprint Girl” wish come true, started Ka ‘Ohana O’Kalaupapa. A non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the value and dignity of every individual who was exiled to the Kalaupapa peninsula beginning in 1866, they have helped hundreds of people find the ancestors who were previously lost to them. If you had an ancestor who was exiled to Kalaupapa, the ‘Ohana want to hear from you.

CONTACT THEM at http://www.kalaupapaohana.org/contact-us.html. Your ‘Ohana, or “family”, are not lost…they are waiting for you to find them.

  1. I’m looking for information on my great grandfather KAOHIAI. He was taken from his three (3) children Kaonohi (k), Kahanu (k) and Kamealoha (w) in 1894.
    Information gathered from probate records. I don’t know if he went to Kalihi Hospital first or directly to Kalaupapa.
    I found information on an index card at the State Archives indicating that he married Annie no last name.
    I don’t have a birth or death date. I pray that “rememberingkalaupapa.org” will be able to assist me in this effort. A small group of seven (7) of us ohana are interested taking a trip to Kalaupapa
    during the month of February 2016. What do we need to gather (documents) to allow us the opportunity to visit Kalaupapa.
    Saturday September 12, 2015 I attended a Family History Fair at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Kaneohe, there was a booth “Ka Ohana O Kalaupapa” manned by Lopaka Hoopii. I had an “instance yearning” to get to know more about my great grandfather.
    Your response will be greatly appreciated.

  2. I can send a small amount to support Ka’Ohana O’Kalaupapa Today. Some of my Ohana are buried there and I was wondering if I could find information about them, and possibly pictures. Mahalo
