George Kia Genealogy Pages

I recently stumbled across this wonderful site that Vicki DeLeo has built that includes some interesting information about her great-grandfather, George Kia Nahaolelua, one of the pioneering Hawaiians that introduced the 'ukulele to the mainland. Vicki has one page devoted to her great-grandparents, and one specifically to George Kia. Many of the images on Vicki's site are fairly high res images. Ukulelia readers will find the early (1907) ad of particular historical intererest.

If you have family from Hawaii, be sure to check out her genealogy information; she's looking for help in filling in some pieces to the puzzle. (Mahalo, Vicki!) Discuss
