Vital records (birth, death, civil union, marriage, and divorce certificates) for events that occurred in Hawaii are received and preserved by the Office of Health Status Monitoring, a unit of the Department of Health. Records of events that occurred more than 75 years prior to the current year can be ordered by persons working on genealogy projects. Since genealogy requests are not considered urgent, they are not processed as priority requests.
Available from BYU-Hawaii Library. Primarily from Honolulu Advertiser, Honolulu Star-Bulletin and Honolulu Star-Advertiser, but also includes some obituaries printed in Kauai Garden Island News, Maui News, and Hawaii Tribune-Herald
Provided by Ulukau, the indexes were originally prepared by Hawaiʻi State Archives staff, and the information contained therein was extracted from a variety of records with genealogical information preserved by the Archives. The indexes contain:
--Marriage Records (1826-1929)
--Divorce Records (1848-1915)
--Naturalization Records (1844-1894)
--Denization Records (1846-1898)
--Passports Records (1845-1874)
The Vital Statistics Collection includes three types of records; births, marriages and deaths from 1826 to 1929. There are very few birth and death records; the majority of the records are marriage records.
