I just tuned the strings to DGBE as I'd always heard the uke mimics the top four strings of a guitar. Also, if I want to play like other types of uke, where can I capo the instrument to play like a tenor or soprano ukulele? Here's a nicely done chord program and handy reference for the shapes if you decide to swerve from G tuning. I measured the scale length at 19", which according to my research is consistent with a baritone uke. Typically a Baritone Uke is tuned DGBE with a low D. g CEA is now consided standard tuning for a uke, but way back when they were tuned a step higher. So I can just capo however high I need to in order to mimic different voices of uke? circumstances use a re-entrant tuning with a standard string set, especially since you claim that yours is larger than most - ukes are very lightly constructed, and you run the risk of damage if you place any undue tension on the top and/or neck.
So unimpressed by the "up-tuning" I went back and tuned it "baritone", but left the thin bottom string- a "high D"- now ,to really split the difference in the guitar/uke crossover I can play partial chords as I know them on guitar, or I can play "uke forms", many are the same obviously, and use the I, IV and V chord formula for the uke chords I was learning- i can transpiose them or not, if necessary- anyway it's hard to explain, but it's a little of both worlds- guitrar AND uke.
These and other European instruments were originally imported into Hawaii by the immigrants, and continued to be imported through the late 19th century, even after local makers started building their own.
