The first laws requiring reporting of births and marriages began in 1842, but many of those early records have not survived. In 1896, the Department of Health was given the responsibility for registering births.
The Department of Health has the following records of birth:
From 1911-1972, a person born in Hawai'i but whose birth was not registered could apply for a delayed certificate, commonly known as a Delayed (Hawaiian) Birth Certificate. Births prior to 1911 are included, and all of these records can be found at the Department of Health.
Birth Records are located at the Department of Health. In order to submit an application to obtain a certificate, you need to know the following information: Name on Certificate, Date of Birth, Place of Birth, Fathers Name, and Mothers Name.
Where can you find all this information?
In order to find this exact information, you need to consult the birth indexes. UH Mānoa has a few copies of birth indexes on microfilm you can look at, however, the bulk of your birth records research will be looking through the birth indexes and records available at the Hawai'i State Archives and the Hawaii State Library (478 S.
