|About Makekau Family
I started this family genealogy after a late night conversation with my cousin Fern
Kalehuamakanoe Prim Pule. It was all about family and how no matter what we are always there
for each other and how I should think about coming home. We had many more late night

I have come to know a lot of family members on the same path as myself; cuz Leilani Oliver

her this site would not be as extensive as it is. Cuz Kona Jugoz is another cuz that has help

ALOHA - After cousin Marilyn Yamamoto's death in Aug. 2017, I have continued to keep up this site
as was her wishes. I will continue to pay and update this site so that we may all know our ohana.
Again, if you wish to update your line, please do so. It is with your help that makes this site
what it is. Leilani Oliver Chung
The quest is not completed we still have a lot to go, If there are any family members that
wishes to include their branch on the tree, please do not hesitate to request an invite, I
would be blessed to add you.
