Duhay, Duhaylonsod, Duhaylongsod, Duhaylongsud, Duhaylunsod,
...with so many *variations on a theme*, we're gonna make every effort to piece together the genealogy puzzle of our family. This is especially important for our younger generations. (Being born in Hawaii, or California, or where ever, is just not good enough!)
Uncle Felix and Uncle Pete have lots of info on this already, but there's still lots of unanswered questions...(how did our name take on so many different forms?, etc...) If you're still in contact with our relations back in the *Home Country*, ask questions!!!
The Duhay men and women came to Hawaii in search of fortune and a better way of life. The first contract workers began in 1909...they were called *laborers*, and were given 3-year contracts. Upon completion of contract terms, they were entitled to free passage back to the Philippines. (At the present time, we have no info on those Duhay's who opted to move to the mainland).
From December 20, 1915, through May 24, 1924, a total of 34 Duhay men and women came to Hawaii. They all came from Siquijor, with Macaria Duhaylongsod being the lone exception...coming from Dapitan, Zambuanga, on the island of Mindanao.
Of the 34 men and women;
* 14 completed the agreement and returned to Manila * 22 were single * 5 women came with their husbands * 7 men came with their wives * 15 had no record of completion of agreement * 5 died and were interred on Oahu * 2 completed their contracts, remained on Oahu, then returned to Siquijor later
Youngest in age was 21; oldest in age was 42...Average age: 28.7 years old.
Spelling of the family surname:
* Duhaylonsod - 1 * Duhaylongsod - 14 * Duhaylongsud - 10 * Duhaylunsod - 3 * Duhaylungsod - 6
** But...notice how all 34 surnames began with "Duhay"? It is now believed that all names should have been identical, but due to language and translation problems, we now have at least these 5 variations.

It is interesting to note that the Japan Shipping Lines dominated the Pacific Trade Routes. The voyage itself took 4-6 weeks. The *Sakadas* (or large groups of contract workers) came during the years of 1921 and 1946.
Sailing Route: Cebu - Manila - Hong Kong
- Osaka - Hawaii
All of the above information were gathered from handwritten or typed 3x5 index cards from the files of the Hawaii Sugar Planter's Association. Many were difficult to read due to illegibility and age. Also, some pertinent information were inadvertently left out.
Every effort has been made to insure the accuracy of this information. Our most sincere apologies to you for any and all errors. Should you notice these mistakes, please notify us immediately so that corrections may be made.
Also, information regarding the lineage of those *Duhays'* who settled on the mainland is not available at this time. We would like to document this important information for our future generations. It will be greatly appreciated if anyone who has this information please step forward and provide it to us.
Much Mahalo...Pete Duhay, Felix Duhaylongsod, and Daren J. Duhaylonsod
Sorry about the length of this page, but I felt that it was extremely important that you get all of this. In the future, as more info rolls in, I'd like to link each of the original 34 Duhays' to their own pages.
So, Will You Return...
You Continue On...
