Hawaii County Resources
This entry was originally written by Dwight A. Radford for Red Book: American State, County, and Town Sources.
Many of the pre-1900 Hawaiian records are held at the state archives. Since territorial days, Hawaii has consisted of five counties: Hawaii, Honolulu, Kalawao, Kauai, and Maui. These were created on 1 July 1905, but their purpose does not include administration of land, probate, or court records. After 1900 probate records and court records are accessed through the Hawaii State Judiciary Court, 797 Punchbowl St., Honolulu, HI 96813. For land records, contact the Bureau of Conveyances, 403 Queen St., Honolulu, HI 96813. The addresses that follow are for the individual counties, but in Hawaii, the counties do not hold the records. For a more complete discussion as to the location of county record sources, see preceding sections.
