looking for Arrudas from Hawaii

Hello. I am just beginning to search for family members. Most of the Arruda family still lives in Hawaii (the big island)today. However, my grandfather, Edward, lives in Western Washington. Edward was born on the big island in 1920. I believe he had 3 siblings, however there might be more. They lived on a sugar plantation. If you by chance know or are related to my grandfather, I would love to hear from you and be able to pass your names along to him. Reuniting with some old family members would be a great surprise for his upcoming 80th birthday! Thank you very much!

I found some more information out about my family that might trigger some information with some of you. My grandfather, Edward Arruda has one brother, Frank, and one sister, Elizabeth, both of whom have passed away within the last 5 years. Also, I found out he grew up in Hilo, Hawaii. He is full blooded Portuguese, along with his mother and father. His parents also died around 1955-1960. Hopefully this information will bring about some new information. Thank you.

Hi Rachel. I am curious if we may be related, possibly. My great grandparents were Mary August Arruda and John Veriato. They were from Portugal or the Azores but most say from the Azores. They traveled by sea to Brazil and then Hawaii, they had two children John b.1915 and Deolinda b.1917. Deolinda or Linda was my grandmother. Mary August and John parted ways and Mary August went on to remarry and had many other children. My grandmother Linda was born in Hilo, Hawaii. She had half brothers and sisters whom I really know very little about other than hearing a name or two now and then but the names I know of are Eddie, Elizabeth, Jane, Lillian, Harriet? and then of course her brother John. I know there are others. Elizabeth passed away within I think the last 6 years. My mother Carolyn (Elizabeth's neice) spoke of Elizabeth often. I have contact with Jane whom I found about a year ago and she says she cannot find her brother Eddie. She doesn't know where he is and has been gone a long time and would like to find him. Could this be the same family do you think?

Hi,my mother is from the Arruda family in Hilo, Hawaii. She 1 of 16 brothers and sisters. My grandfather was Emanuel Arruda and my grandmothers name was Mable. Most of them still live in Hilo, but my mother lives in Michigan (Manuelleen Arruda-Law) and has a brother who lives in Oregon, Dayton Arruda. My Aunt who still lives in Hilo has done an extensive family tree dateing back to the 1700s I think. As soon as I can get her e-mail address, I can give it to you if you would like.

Hi Rachel,

I received more information about my Arruda family. Arruda may possibly be my great grandmother's married name. Her maiden name may be Silva. Her children are John, Edwin, Elizabeth, Jane, Helen, Jacob, Harriet and Linda. We do have two different families, no connection. I'm sorry but wish you much luck in finding your ancestors.

Best wishes,

Arruda Family in Hawaii
