Special Censuses

Colonial Census

Colonial censuses exist for some portions of Hawaii for 1866, 1878, 1890, and 1896. The 1878 census is for Hilo only, and the 1896 is for the island of Oahu only. The 1890 and 1896 censuses are the most complete. They give the name, age, sex, and birthplace of every person. The 1878, 1890, and 1896 censuses are available at the Hawaii State Archives and the Family History Library (Family History Library films 1010681-88).

Census Files

The Hawaii State Archives also has two "census files," 1840 to 1866 and 1847 to 1866, which contain miscellaneous records such as school census, population lists, and vital record summaries (Family History Library film 1009896 item 1-2 has records for 1840-1866).

State and Territorial Censuses

The federal census records 1900-1930 for Hawaii are territorial censuses, since Hawaii was not a state until 1959. For state census records, refer to Colonial census records under Special Censuses.

Web Sites

FamilySearch Record Search has free census indexes and images for 1900; but indexes only for 1920.
