  1. Mahalo Catherine Hughes for sharing this blessed event in my life. My intentions to attend was to ask about public access once it enters the Hamilton Library. But, as I sat there I realized that I was a participant of Palama Settlement as a young child. My grandparents has a church "Gospel of Salvation" just down the street and they are buried at Oahu cemetary. At the age of four, I remember living on Palama Road, Lanakila Housing, on the church grounds as well as on Kalihi St. And I had lots of family on Pua Lane. My mother grew up in a Red House (Tutu Kaleo's) where Susana Wesley exist. My interest in research is Don Marin for we have lot's of Marin family members living in Waianae. I'm interested in the details of Annexation and the Monarchy common laws. I was also a participant at Kaimuki Library to stop the building over the graves on Kings Street. One thing led to a branch of interest! Mahalo Luwella Leonardi
