  1. Aloha,
    My Great great great grand mother, Mary Kaanehu Kaiaikawaha Nathaniel wife of Thomas K. Nathaniel was a formal student at Waialua Seminary. I found an newspaper article on Waialua Seminary, that mention her, Mrs. Thomas K. Nathaniel and another formal student, Miss Burns – The Hawaiian Gazette dated 27 Jul 1881, Wed • Page 2
    I was hoping there might be more information on the Waialua Seminary and my Kupuna

    Mahalo, CLNaoneCarter
