So many of our ancestors worked on the Plantations, I felt this may be of help to some in their search. Plantation Archives at the University of Hawaii at Manoa
has many records and may be able to help in your research.

When the world coffee market crashed in 1899, the large plantations shifted to small Japanese-owned family farms. As the plantations gave up, land was divided into
small 3- to 5-acre parcels and leased to the laborers. The cost of these early leases were one-half the crop, and by 1910, only Japanese coffee farms survived.
The first Filipinos arrived to work the coffee farms about 1920, picking coffee during the season and returning to the sugar fields in the spring.
