Searching for a city road map of WW2 era Oahu, Pearl Harbor, to locate my father's home location.

Pearl Harbor Rd at Q Street; I have the address too where he lived during the attack. These roads no longer exist so I would turn the location into latitude and longitude. I have been trying University of Hawaii, USPS and Hawaii Historical Society with little or no response from people, but will continue to do so, adding sources as they are considered.Thank you for any assistance.

  • VonSinkum,

    I have a detailed map of Oahu for 1954, and your streets aren't on it.  However, I can direct you to a possible map source, the 1940 U.S. Census Maps.  I don't have the patience to go through the roll that is a National Archives film to find your specific area, but instead I'll put you on the frame that has 1940 Kaneohe Oahu and you can go through the images for 1940.  It's at: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QS7-99HB-G3Y3?i=546&wc=92VW-C6F%3A1077257601&cc=2329948  registration required, but it's free.  My link hopefully will put you on image 547 of 837.   Image 546 shows Kaneohe & Hauulu, Oahu.  .... and so on.  Hopefully it will include your area.  Let me know.  Good luck.

  • My father and his Mom, my grandmother, watched the attack from their front porch and had their house damaged by aircraft machine gun fire, so they were pretty close. My grandfather, stationed in Pearl, had shipped out on his heavy cruiser, the Louisville CA-28 at the time. Ahhh, the questions I could ask now.

    I was able to find a detailed map of Pearl City and was able to rule that out.

    Thank you very much for your contribution to my cause. Any and all help is appreciated. I will let you know how it turns out.
