'''3. Enter information into Persona Ancestral File or similar computer program.'''<br>Family members helped me copy the information from the ''Hohoko'' into the [[PAF and Other Genealogy Organizers|Person Ancesral File computer program]]. From there, it can be printed out as [ pedigree charts] and [[Family group record: roadmap for researchers|family group records]] and entered into the TempleReady program to request [[Step 10.

'''5. Share the information with others.<br>'''Before we came to America, my father was able to get permission to copy the royal lineage charts of ''Amelia Tamaha'' at the Kings’ palace, and several other charts of Royal ancestors. He brought these with him. The family donated them to the Family History Library as the ''Iohani and Salote Wolfgramm Papers'' mentioned below.
*Túi Latai Mataele (''who came from the royal lines) book of records he copied from the Tongan Royal Palace''
*''Veikune book of records of Queen Matáaho’s father.''
*''77 Genealogy Charts of Royal Families, Nobles, and Chiefs from `Ahueitu and Tangaloa and his son `Aho Eitu, the first Tui Tonga 950 A.D. to Takulaua Tui, Ha`a Takalaua 1450, including the Ha!'a Túi Kanokupolu line. ''These charts are in larger print, with some additional names than are found on the 99 Genealogy Charts of Royal Families, Nobles, and Chiefs in this same collection.
'''Tui’one's Tongan Pedigree Charts and CD'''
Kakolosi K. Tui’one, ''Tongan Pedigree Charts Including Royal Lineages'' (West Valley City, Utah: K. Tui'one, 2002) [[*,0,0 CD-ROM no. 1125 supp.; PEDIGREE no. 2182 pt. 1-71]] During his life, Kakolosi Tui’one worked hard to collect the records of the royal family of Tonga. He was given permission in 1949 to copy the records of the royal family.&nbsp;These records are on “maps” or ''hohoko ''charts. They are on a Compact Disc that must be read by a ''Computer Assisted Design (AutoCAD14) ''program. (It is not possible to see what is on the CD by loading it onto a regular word processing program).
The maps are 32 by 41 inches and cannot be printed out by a regular computer printer because they are in AutoCad format. There are 70 maps in the set. You can call Kakolosi’s children at 801-446-5362and 5362 and they will print out the ones requested. If you want to buy the CD with all of the files on it, you can also request it from the Tui’one Family. The family donated a copy to the Family History Library, which has the call number '''CD-ROM no. 1125 - INTL Lib Att Win.'''
A printed copy of these maps is located in the bottom drawer of one of the large pedigree chart and map cases in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. The call number is '''PEDIGREE no. 2182, pt. 1 - 71 INTL Pedigree File.''' Ask a Library Attendant for help in getting them.
Note: Because the maps are computerized, each map has a ''file name''. The ''file name'' contains family names on the charts. They start with the letters of the alphabet contained in the map. Look at the index to see the file names for the maps and the name of the ancestral couple of the decendants on that map.
'''The Cole Jensen Collection'''
An important collection of copied genealogies for Tonga is found in the <u>''Cole-Jensen Collection: Oral Genealogies and Genealogical Information Collected from the Polnesian Peoples and from the Pacific Islands.''</u>&nbsp; These records were collected over a 50 year period and microfilmed in 1984 by the Genealogical Sociey of Utah.&nbsp; The original collection consisted of 51 binders.&nbsp; The original materials no longer exist as an intact collection.&nbsp; However, there are nine microfilms: '''1358001''' through 1'''358009''', available at various family history centers.&nbsp; This collection sontains family group records, pedigree charts, and oral genealoges collected from the lslands of Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Niue, Cook Ilslands, and French Polynesia, including the Society, Marquesas, Austral Islands, and the Tuamotu Archipelago.&nbsp; The following microfilms contain Tongan information:
