Surnames: Yokoyama, Mizugai, Mawae
My maternal grandfather is a Yokoyama, but their last name
was changed from Mizugai through a custom called "yoshi",
where the male changes his last name to the wife's family
name. I also know of a Russell Mawae, who's mother is from
Japan (don't know what prefecture).

So original name was Mizugai and changed to Yokoyama? I have marriage certificate of Heji Yokoyama -m- Hainaulu Kapaau Mawae.I do not have a Russel Mawae but maybe they are all connected in some way. I know Heji Yokoyama passed on 2/13/1926.Is your grandfather related to Heji Yokoyama?Thanks

I don't know of a Heji Yokoyama. My grandfather was
born in Fukushima, Japan and he had two brothers that I know of. One went to Brazil and the other died in the relocation camp, Manzanar.

I worked with Russell Mawae but, I don't believe he is in my family tree. Our Yokoyama name change was prior to immigration to Hawaii, back in the 1800's. Our family is not from Nahiku, Maui.

Aloha Nahoapili1,

My nephews are R Alejado QUISQUIRIN and M Alejado QUISQUIRIN. Their great great grandfather was Heiji YOKOYAMA. If you would like to meet or "talk story," then feel free to email me at bjquisquirin@yahoo.com.

BTW2, I'm researching their ALESNA family line, also.

Bryan
