Welcome to the Hawaii
USGenWeb Obituary Project!


Public Domain Obituaries (pre-1931) and Abstracts:

Volunteers Needed!

This is a new project for Hawaii and we hope to make it a success by getting many local newspapers & funeral homes involved!

We encourage individuals with Hawaii Obituaries dated before January 1, 1931, to come forward with them. Please submit them using HIArchives Obituaries & Death Notices Forms.
