Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person. You may want to write to the Hawaii State Archives for information about its collection of manuscript genealogies.

An important manuscript collection of compiled genealogies for Hawaii is William A. Cole's Cole-Jensen Collection. This consists of 51 binders and folders of oral genealogy transcripts collected from Polynesians of Hawaii, New Zealand, Samoa, Tahiti, and the Cook Islands, microfilmed in 1984. The Hawaiian genealogies comprise three of nine microfilms (beginning on FHL film 1358001). The original materials no longer exist as an intact collection.

A major published genealogical collection is Edith Kawelohea McKinzie, Hawaiian Genealogies: Extracted from Hawaiian Language Newspapers. Two Volumes. (Honolulu: Brigham Young University–Hawaii, 1983-6; FHL book 996.9 D2m). The FHLC also lists several sources on Hawaiian nobility under HAWAII - NOBILITY.
