HONOLULU (AP) — President Barack Obama is spending New Year's Day remembering his family's history in Hawaii.

Obama took his wife and daughters to visit his grandfather's grave Sunday morning. The president's grandfather, Stanley Dunham, is buried at Punchbowl National Cemetery.

The Obamas then headed to the East-West Center, a research and exhibition center that is featuring a display on the anthropological work of the president's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham.

The center says the exhibition includes photographs taken during Dunham's years of field research in Indonesia, as well as her personal art and artifact collection.

Obama was born and mostly raised in Honolulu, though he spent a few years as a boy living in Indonesia with his mother.
