We are the great-grandchildren:
Our father Minoru Kikuchi was born in Honohima, Hawaii on 3/5/1908
His father (our grandfather) Namizo Kikuchi was born in Fukushima Shinobugun, Omorimura, Japan on 10/10/1876
His father (our great-grandfather) Daisaki Kikuchi Birth ????, Japan
Our grandparents Namizo Kikuchi (wife=Yae Suzuki) Family arrived in Hawaii 6/16/1907
I have found information on the Kikuchi family in Hawaii. There are records of Japanese
family by family name, date of arrival and then name of the ship the ancestors come in and find
out which part of Japan they came from.
From the "Family guide provide by Hawaiian State Public Library System ..."
"Japanese-The key to Japanese research is finding the family Koseki which
is the family registry that Japanese immigrants brought with them from their villages.
The Japanese Consultate has an index to passenger lists from 1885 to 1910. The
passenger lists are also at the Bishop Museum and the Hawaii State Archives.
The Hawaii State Library has a microfilm copy of the card index of
passinger lists found at the Hawaii State Archives. Researchers can call the Japanese
Consultate with the family name, date of arrival and the name of the ship the
ancestors came in and find out which part of Japan they came from. Also refer to the LDS
(Mormon) research paper on dates records are available for Japanese research.
I would like to get more information on:
(1) Daisaku Kikuchi born=?, Japan(wife=Tsume)
(2) Yosaku Fujikawa born=1879(father=Genzo Fujikawa, mother=Mitsu Fujikawa)
in 1899 arrive in Hawaii from Japan
