The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) today unveiled the Papakilo Database, an ongoing development of a comprehensive "Database of Databases" consisting of varied collections pertaining to significant places, events, and documents in Hawai'i's history. The new web site contains several databases containing land and government records, genealogy indexes and historic Hawaiian language newspapers.
"So folks that need to do historical research, like from the neighbor islands for example, you have to literally fly to Oahu to get some of this research done. Because the documents are digitized and now online, no longer will you have to do that," OHA Chief Executive Officer Clyde Namuo said.
The Office of Hawaiian Affairs partnered with several other entities, including the Bishop Museum and Kumu Pono Associates to create the new online site at http://www.papakilodatabase.com.
