  1. Is this site suitable for middle school students to use for research regarding Portuguese immigration to Hawai’i starting from 1878? I’m a librarian for a middle school in Hawai’i

    1. Thanks for your comment. I responded to you privately and here, but my comment seems to have disappeared. I thought I would respond again just in case. Yes, this website is appropriate for middle school students. Though it touches on some sensitive topics, the material is meant to encourage discussion about our ancestors and the times they lived in.
