Hawaiian Genealogy

Hawaii has a unique history compared to other US states. Because of its interesting past, searching for genealogy records in Hawaii is a little different from other parts of the US.

Hawaii usgenweb is a great website to help you understand Hawaiian history and genealogy. The site also provides links to online genealogy resources.

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs runs the Papakilo Database and collects documents and data pertaining to historically significant events and places in Hawaiian history. Search their genealogy indexes, newspapers, maps, and more.

Hawaiian Roots is a nonprofit organization devoted to providing online genealogy resources and research assistance. The site includes the state censuses of Hawaii and articles on various Hawaiian records and how to find them.

To further connect with your Hawaiian ancestors, use the library database Mango to learn the Hawaiian language!
