Garden Island newspaper online at Chronicling America! 2012.

One more awesome thing I wanted to note about Garden Island—You can look at old issues online from anywhere connected to the internet (from 5/2/1911 to 12/26/1922), thanks to Chronicling America. And not just that, but Maui News (2/17/1900 to 12/27/1918) and Hilo Tribune (1/2/1902 to 6/26/1906) as well!

For a current and complete list of all they have available at this moment (because they are always adding new pages), click here!

    Great to know about that, as I plan to be doing some (amateur) historical research on some Big Island communities. I’d like to do some genealogical “mapping” of those communities using early censes and local newspapers. The genealogy is the tough part, because many of the surnames and family tree lines are confusing! But it has to be done before the descendants of (plantation) immigrant and native peoples lose track of oral traditions.
