World War I (1917-1918)

Contact the Hawaii State Archives for records of Hawaiians who served in World War I and a card list of deceased veterans.

World War I draft registration cards for men age 18 to 45 may list address, birth date, birthplace, race, nationality, citizenship, and next of kin. Not all registrants served in the war. For registration cards for Hawaii, see:

  • United States. Selective Service System. Hawaii, World War I Selective Service System Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918. National Archives Microfilm Publications, M1509. Washington, DC: National Archives, 1987-1988. (On Family History Library films beginning with 1452025.)

To find an individual's draft card, it helps to know his name and residence at the time of registration. The cards are arranged alphabetically by county, within the county by draft board, and then alphabetically by surname within each draft board.

Most counties had only one board; large cities had several. A map showing the boundaries of individual draft boards is available for most large cities. Finding an ancestor's street address in a city directory will help you in using the draft board map. There is an alphabetical list of cities that are on the map. For a copy of this map see:

  • United States. Selective Service System. List of World War One Draft Board Maps. Washington, DC: National Archives. (Family History Library film 1498803.)

Civil War Pension Index Cards - An Index to Pension Applications of veterans who served in the US Army between 1861-1917 is available on FamilySearch. It has a few pension cards for servicemen, from Hawaii, who served in the military during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The majority of the records pertain to Civil War veterans, but the collection also includes records for veterans of the Spanish-American War, the Philippine Insurrection, the Indian Wars, and World War I. Each card gives the soldier’s name, application and certificate numbers, state of enlistment, and might include rank and death information

World War II (1941-1945)

Records of Japanese evacuees during World War II are at the National Archives. They include case files, family cards, and vital statistics.
