Hello, My Name is Joshua V. Ooka. the reply from Josepha is right. her grandfather was my great grandfather, and her great grandfather was my great-great grandfather. I was looking for our family Crest of Japan. My great Grandpa was a political official on Guam, a very important man to the island. His son (Vicente) Ooka Sr. recently passed away on August 18, 2008 of Pancreatic Cancer. he was diagnosed in 2006, and he held on a long time. You would have been happy to meet him. In many ways, almost all, he was like my Great Grandfather. My grandpa told me once that all OOKA's are related, it's a true japanese last name. The double 'OO' is Significant, and seperates us from the other last name 'Oka'. Our last name as i was told means Big Hill or Mountain. If you don't already know. Well i hope to hear from you soon. And trust me, you have so much family it's overwhelming. Were actually thinking of taking a family portrait soon. And i'm from the Bay Area.
