Interesting Facts

The Hawaiian Archipelago stretches 1,523 miles and includes 132 islands, reefs, and atolls, mostly uninhabited, with the exception of the eight main islands--Ni`ihau, Kaua`i, O`ahu, Moloka`i, Lanai, Kaho`olawe, Maui, and Hawai`i.

When Captain James Cook visited the islands in 1778, he named them the Sandwich Islands after the Earl of Sandwich, who was the first Lord of the British Admiralty.

Between 1790 and 1893, the islands were ruled by a monarchy. The monarchy ended when Queen Liliuokalanai was overthrown by plantation owners favoring annexation to the United States. Annexation, though opposed by native Hawaiians was completed in 1898.

Hawaii Census Research

The Hawaiian Islands were annexed by the United States in 1898. The 1900 U.S. census was being taken when the islands became a U.S. territory on 14 June 1900. The 1900 U.S. census is arranged by island because there were no counties at that time. The island of Niihau was enumerated as E.D. 84 of Kauai, the island of Kahoolawe as E.D. 107, and Lanai as E.D. 100 of Maui.

Island censuses for portions of Hawaii were also taken in 1866, 1878, 1890, and 1896. The 1878 census covers the islands of Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu, while the 1896 census covers Honolulu only. Copies of these early census records are on file at the Hawaii State Archives and the FHL. The Hawaii State Archives has two "census files" dating from 1840 to 1866 and from 1847 to 1896 which contain miscellaneous records such as school census, population lists, and vital record summaries. These are also on microfilm at the FHL.

 

Hawaii Vital Records

Hawaii has birth and death records beginning in 1853. Before 1896, however, the records are incomplete. Early vital records were kept by local government authorities and clergymen, including a few missionary reports that date back as early as 1826. These records are on file at the Hawaii State Archives, the Department of Health, and the Daughters of the American Revolution Library in Honolulu, and many are at the FHL in Salt Lake City.

Since 1911, delayed birth certificates can be applied for in Hawaii. They often contain valuable genealogical information. The FHL has seventy microfilm rolls of delayed birth records for Hawaii. This collection contains 50,000 delayed birth records and covers the period from 1859 to 1903, with indexes from 1859 to 1938. Most records are now deposited with the State Department of Health.
