Thanks to the internet... I've reconnected with my family in Hawaii... my mom is one of five siblings: Marie (my mom), Donna, Gwen, Bill, and Stephen.
My Uncle Stephen has located information about his family using ancestry.com, he has interesting stories to share.
He has also been kind enough to scan some family photos and email them to me.
Uncle Stephen (my mom's brother), Aunt Yuko, and my cousins Eve and Daisy.
