About this collection

Hawaii State Archives Land Index is organized by place names and by names of individuals, agencies, organizations and businesses. Indexes arranged alphabetically are to government records from the Kingdom, Provisional Government, Republic, and Territory of Hawaii. Many of the index entries refer to records from the Privy Council, Interior Department, Foreign Office, Commissioner of Public Lands, and Territorial Governor’s administration records.
