Hawaii Records Details and Resources
Where to find Hawaii census records, immigration records, land records, maps, vital records and more.
Parts of Hawaii were enumerated well before it became a territory, and microfilm of these censuses is available through the Family History Library (FHL), including 1840 to 1843 (index only), 1866 (fragment), 1878 (island of Hawaii), 1890 and 1896 (Oahu). The 1900 census was the first federal census to cover the new territory.

You can fill in some blanks in 19th-century Hawaiian enumerations using two groups of files in the state archives loosely labeled "census." These files, covering 1840 to 1866 (available on FHL microfilm) and 1847 to 1896, include records such as school census statistics, population census statistics, and summaries of births, marriages and deaths.
