Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm David, and one of my many hobbies involves genealogy and family history, which I have pursued more than 30 years. I have watched Find A Grave's growth over the last several years and have found it to be an important and very useful resource. Hence, I have elected to become a more active participant, as time permits. As a volunteer, my prime interest is in assisting other genealogists and family historians in obtaining photographs of the graves of their kin.

There was also a brother Stanley Broome who was living in Honolulu ca 1976 re his fathers obituary I have not found as yet and another brother LaVerne Broome of College Place, Washington I have not found. I have been researching the Broome family as my Great Grand Uncle Andrews, came to the US from England and married Lula May Broome in 1948...his 3rd marriage.

Hope this is of interest

Thank you so much for adding my GGG grandmother and children to the site. Fantastic pictures, I've never seen the headstone before. Your work is very appreciated!

Her husband, Samuel P. Aheong (my GGG grandfather), was the first Chinese christian missionary in the Hawaiian Islands.
