Copyrighted 2001-2005 pics: Grandparent-age

* Note that these are personal, private pics that are copyrighted by me. (In the Hawaiian culture one isn't supposed to expose the iwi (pronounced "eeh-veeh") which means "bones." For me to post pics of my Hawaiian ancestors is exposing some bones but for educational purposes... it's okay.) I'm posting these pics to show how common it is for Hawaiians to be mixed.

Here are four pics of my grandparents. (DO NOT redistribute these pics or else they will curse you. Consider yourself warned.):


This is a pic of my great grandmother who was half Hawaiian, half Chinese. That was her husband whom I have never met but I met her when I was a child. (He was Portuguese and Hawaiian.) We called her "Meow Grandma" because she had alot of cats. Roots are in South Kealia, Kona, Hawai'i, Keaukaha, Hawai'i and Miloli'i, Hawai'i.


My paternal grandparents when they were married. My grandmother is Hawaiian and Chinese. My grandfather was English, Hawaiian, and Chinese. Roots are in Kaupo, Maui and Lahaina, Maui.




My maternal grandfather who was Portuguese. Roots from Madeira Islands, Portugal. He died before I was born so I never met him.



My maternal grandmother who was Portuguese, Hawaiian, and Chinese. Roots from Madeira Islands, South Kealia Kona/Hilo/and Keaukaha, and Canton China.



Thus my ethnic mix in Haole (or "American" or "White" or "Caucasian") terms:

English 3/8ths
Hawaiian 3/8ths
Chinese 1/8th and
Portuguese 1/8th

Great photos! Thanks for sharing. I was just looking at some old family photos myself this weekend and was noticing the lovely style of wedding dresses and veils women used to wear during our grandparents' generation. Your "good looking" grandfather looks very tall!
