Simply because Hawaii started to be a state in 1959 doesn’t imply that there aren’t historical records to be found. Although finding information for any Hawaiian forebears, just before pre-European colonization could possibly be difficult, there are historical records such as very important records maintained by missionaries during 1826 and published birth and death data records started out in 1853. Just before 1840, the King possessed all of the the land so don’t search for land documentation before that year. The US Federal Census was initially performed in 1900 yet before that a Royal Census Enumeration was carried out for certain parts of Hawaii starting in 1866 and ended in 1896.
