Aloha, I am doing family research on my genealogy and came across this site through Facebook “Hawaiian Spaniards,” I just want to thank you for transcripting these articles. I am still trying to locate my great, great, great grandpa but I have a deeper understanding on how he got here & what life was like for him. Living in Hawaii our history classes about migration from a Hawaiian perspective but we do not get what was the Spanish perspective on migration. It also confirms what USA really intentions where when importing labors, good or bad its part of human history and knowing the truth is all that matters. MAHALO!
My great grandfather and his son-in-law, my grandfather, were both Spanish immigrants to Hawaii. Rafael Campos, the great grandfather, had a dairy in Kailua that supplied Honolulu with milk for many years. My great aunt Lola interviewed him about his life and wrote up his life story. Would that be something you would want for this site?
Yes, we’d love to see that material. I think we’ve interviewed a relative of yours: Frank Campos, who lives in Monterey.
Frank contributed many photos to our book “Invisible Immigrants: Spaniards in the US (1868-1945)” which is available at invisibleimmigrants.com.

Both sets of grandparents on my mother’s side emigrated from Spain to Hawaii. Afterwards they went to California and settled in the San Leandro area. There was a big Spanish, Portuguese and Italian population and I grew up eating paella, soupish, linguisa as well as lasagna. My grandmother used to tell stories about her father working in the city cleaning up after the big earthquake of 1906. Not many people are aware that Ellis Island was not the only landing spot for immigrants, but the port of Oakland as well. My grandfather’s name was Francisco Polvorosa and my grandmother’s name was Josephina Perry
