Yahoo! National News - Fri, 06/12/2015 - 15:17

A row of graves sit in Pauoa Hawaiian Cemetery in Honolulu, Hawaii on Thursday, June 11, 2015. There’s an effort underway to preserve and repair grave markers at aging cemeteries like this one. Cemeteries can provide a wealth of information for people tracing their Native Hawaiian genealogy, according to Nanette Napoleon, a freelance historical researcher whose work focuses on cemeteries. But little or no burial records were kept at these mid- to late 19th century cemeteries. The vast majority of Hawaii's 300 cemeteries are like Pauoa's, where a chapel once stood near where a monkeypod tree now looms tall and wide. (AP Photo/Jennifer Sinco Kelleher)HONOLULU (AP) — Sarah Kailikele was 84 years old when she died on Aug. 14, 1909, according to the inscription on her toppled tombstone, which was leaning on the base it was once mounted on.
