This is Barack Obama's grandfather, and the profile is open so anyone can edit it.   I welcome any help in determining sources for his profile.

So far I've added some information based on Barack Obama's book. I'm not quite sure what name to use for Onyango's parents... Obama No Last Name? Obama Obama? Obama Opiyo?

Opiyo is probably the best. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Luo_surnames

I'm curious why Barack Sr. used Obama instead of Onyango.
